In an October 30 letter from Pres. Benigno Aquino III, Justin DJ Sucgang was formally appointed as a regular member of the Legal Education Board (LEB) to represent the student sector. Sucgang took his Oath of Office last November 25 at the Supreme Court of Manila, Philippines. The DLSU College of Law student was one of the three nominees from the student sector and is the first appointee from a private law school. His excellent track record as a law student prompted his formal appointment to the LEB. Sucgang, also a DLSU Psychology Department lecturer, is a full university scholar and recipient of the Melencio-Herrera scholarship grant. He served as top legal intern in the Office of the Solicitor General in 2012. In the following year, Sucgang worked as an apprentice at the SyCip Salazar Hernandez & Gatmaitan Law Office. The newly appointed member of the Legal Education Board was also part of the baseline study on Philippine Legal education by the University Research Coordination Office. He was also a research assistant in the DLSU COL’s research program workshop on law students’ learning strategies.
