The College of Law of the University of the Philippines (Diliman campus) was established on 12 January 1911, and is largely recognised to be the leading law school in the Philippines. Its alumni have occupied the highest positions in Philippine society – four became President of the Republic - Jose P. Laurel, Sr., Elpidio Quirino, Manuel Roxas and Ferdinand E. Marcos; eleven served as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and a sizable percentage of the Senators and members of the House of Representatives are also graduates of the College. Many more of its graduates are, at present, prominent law practitioners, high officials in the government service and political leaders in private enterprises.
