THE PRACTICE OF LAW is among the greater forms of scholarship in the civilized world. Still, teaching law is a distinct accolade of its own. Nowhere is this more true than in UP Law. Not everyone who applies there gets in—some have been applying for years. It is thus a source of fraternal pride that several brods—Dean Bart Carale ‘52, Othelo C. Carag ’81, Ronald “Pope” O. Solis ’81, Alfredo “John” B. Molo III ’00, Mark Dennis Y.C. Joven ’01 GA’04, Gerard L. Chan ’01, Dino Aguirre ‘04—by their recognized excellence and expertise in their chosen fields, have been Teaching Law in the Grand Manner for some time now.

In the summer of 1963, I had just graduated from high school in Angeles, Pampanga. I was excited to enroll in UP where most of my gang mates were studying and were incoming sophomores and juniors. Almost all were planning to join fraternities. As the youngest in the group at 15 years and 10 months old and an incoming freshman, they all discouraged me and did not want to take me along in joining “Upsilon” and “Beta Sigma” – the frats they were intending to join. Since I was insistent and “makulit,” they agreed to work out that I join the “Sigma Rho” because, according to them, “maraming magaling at gago na kamukha mo” (since I was a smart-ass punk then).
