The Univer­sity of the Philip­pines (UP) Law Class of 1976 will hold a grand re­union and book launch on Oct. 20 to cap a year-long com­mem­o­ra­tion of its Ruby An­niver­sary Ju­bilee at the Se­quoia Ho­tel in Que­zon City.

Ti­tled “Present Per­fect,” the book memo­ri­al­izes 40 years of life’s jour­ney of mem­bers of the 61st batch of UP Col­lege of Law grad­u­ates.

The book was put to­gether by an ed­i­to­rial staff com­posed of Jorge Ca­bildo, Moises To­lentino Jr., Wil­fredo Trinidad, David Si­mon, Ran­dolph Salazar, Ceasar Ora­cion and Ben­jamin Su­bido, with cover de­sign by Kinjo Es­tioko.

Lu­cien Sayuno was project man­ager for the book that also car­ries ar­ti­cles from Civil Law Prof. Ruben Balane and Prof. Pa­tri­cia Sal­vador Daway.

Led by its pres­i­dent, Vic­to­ria de­los Reyes, the 1976 class was the first batch of mar­tial law grad­u­ates. It was also one of the few classes with 100per­cent pass­ing record in the Bar ex­ams with its top two grad­u­ates also top­ping the Bar.

Hailed by for­mer Dean Sal­vador Car­lota as “one of the strong­est classes” he had han­dled, the class has since made sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to the law pro­fes­sion and pub­lic ser­vice.

The class pro­duced three jus­tices—Court of Ap­peals and Sandi­gan­bayan—and three re­gional trial court judges. It also pro­duced one univer­sity pres­i­dent, three law school deans and dozens of law pro­fes­sors and lec­tur­ers.
