Bio-data of Justice ISAGANI A. CRUZ

JUSTICE ISAGANI A. CRUZ was born in Manila on October 11, 1924, to Vicente G. Cruz, after whom that street in Sampaloc is named, and Aurora Anzures.

His early schooling was at the Legarda Elementary School and the Mapa High School. He finished his pre-law and freshman law years at the University of the Philippines, then transferred to the MLQ School of Law, where he graduated cum laude in 1951. He placed eighth in the bar examinations for that year with a rating of 90.15%.
He served as legal consultant of the Philippine panel that negotiated the commercial treaty with Japan in 1961. He was also legal adviser of the Philippine delegations to the Interparliamentary Union Conference in Denmark in 1964, and to the Asian Parliamentarians’ Union Conference in Japan in 1968, Cambodia in 1970, Indonesia in 1971, and Australia in the same year.
In 1966 he was appointed Chairman of the Code Commission that later drafted the basis of the Child and Youth Welfare Code. He resigned in 1972 to join Laurel Law Offices as senior partner specialized in Constitutional Law and International Law.
Justice Cruz was dean of the Lyceum School of Law from 1962 to 1968 and taught later as full professor and/or bar reviewer in the law colleges of UP, Ateneo, San Beda, UE, UST, FEU, and others. He now lectures for the UP Law Center and the Philippine Judicial Academy. He is the author of widely used textbooks, to wit, Philippine Political Law, Constitutional Law, International Law, and International Law Reviewer, and many legal treatises.

Justice Cruz was appointed to the Supreme Court on April 16, 1986, one of the five members chosen directly from the bar and of the six law deans drafted from the academe. At the time of his retirement in 1994, he was the Senior Associate Justice of the Supreme Court and Chairman of its First Division. He was also Chairman of the Senate Electoral Tribunal and, earlier, of the House of Representatives Electoral Tribunal.
Chief Justice Enrique M. Fernando said of Justice Cruz that “his interest in writings other than legal undoubtedly contributes to his polished and elegant opinions.” Chief Justice Claudio Teehankee called him “the lyricist of the Court.” Chief Justice Andres R. Narvasa spoke of him thus:
“Hand in hand with possessing a rare gift of language and a felicity of style, Justice Cruz is also an incisive thinker and logician, as many lawyers who have orally argued before the Court have discovered, often to their discomfiture.”
“These qualities, added to an uncompromising rectitude and, withal, an understanding of human frailty that would temper the harshness of the law with compassion wherever possible, make him the complete jurist.”
The resolution unanimously adopted by the Supreme Court on his retirement read in part:
“Some of the more important and powerful statements on constitutional rights of Mr. Justice Cruz are embodied in the dissents he has written. Time will tell us which of those dissents will become the prevailing rule... Whether we joined in his dissents or not, we are all indebted to Justice Cruz for the clarity of his vision and the learning and passion with which he conveyed that vision.”
Justice Cruz was selected Outstanding Manilan for 1995 in the field of law. In 1997, he was the St. Thomas More lecturer at the UST, the Jorge Bocobo lecturer at the UP and the 50th anniversary lecturer at the MLQ University. He has received many awards from, among others, the Supreme Court, the Integrated Bar of the Philippines, the Senate and House of Representatives Electoral Tribunals, the Supreme Court Lawyers Association, the San Beda College, the MLQ Alumni Association, the UST Faculty of Arts and Letters, the Far Eastern University, the Mapa High School Alumni Association, and the National Centennial Commission.
He was conferred the award of the Most Outstanding Alumnus of MLQU for the year 2003.
Launched in 2000 was Res Gestae: A Brief History of the Supreme Court, which he wrote with his daughter Cynthia, who also edited a collection of his Decisions and Dissents. He is also the author of Separate Opinion and co-author of Correct Choice of Words, Idiomatic Expressions, and Essentials of English Grammar, parts of a laguage series for lawyers.
Justice Cruz is now dean of the Perpetual Help College of Law and held the Jose P. Laurel Chair on Constitutional Law at the Lyceum of the Philippines. He writes a week-end column in the Inquirer entitled Separate Opinion and is Of counsel for one of his three son's law firms.
Justice Cruz is the holder of the degree of Doctor of Laws(honoris causa) from the MLQ University.
He is married to Salvacion Lopez. They have six children, namely, Cesar, Claro, Celso, Carlo, Isagani, Jr., and Cynthia.

Dr. Alejandro R. Roces
National Artist for Literature
(Published in his column “Roses and Thorns ”dated
September 6, 2005, Philippine Star)

Two months ago, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts converted my collection of cockfighting stories into comic strips. There I came across an old colleague from the Earthsavers Movement – Prof. Tomas C. Ongoco and he gave me two of his recently published tagalog modernized Tagalog translations of Jose Rizal’s two novels – Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. And to my pleasant surprise he also handed me his Filipino translation of the zarzuela version of my stories Something to Crow About. This was the version that was serialized in Radio Balintataw, DZRH under the title of Bagay na Maititilaok.

We have been highly impressed with Ongoco’s contributions not only to national language, but to language in general. Some 20 years ago, he initiated the use of the word “garbology” to mean the study of garbage which is one of our major problems today.

His versions of Rizal’s two novels will be great help to teachers and students because they contain a study help so that readers can have an understanding of the socio-political of the country during Rizal’s time plus a full appreciation of Rizal’s total life works.

On November 22, Ongoco is again launching another book. This time the book is an anthology of his 25 environment poems. It is titled Ambon Sa Tagtuyot, Summer Drizzle. It links Mother Earth to love of country and pride in our indigenous culture. Eight of the poems are about nationalism. One of them is titled “Pilipinas: Sa Asya’y Unang Republika.” There is also a special section of Tagalog translations of Spanish and English poems.

August was National Language Month. So this column is really a belated tribute to Prof. Tomas C. Ongoco on national language month. He has certainly contributed a lot to Tagalog literature. As stated earlier, he did a rendition of my short stories in cockfighting in Tagalog and gave it the fitting title of Bagay na Maititilaok. It is an excellent translation of the English expression “Something to Crow About”. I am amazed at the number of people who have commended me on my short stories after it was presented on radio in Tagalog. Obviously, there are much, much more radio listeners than readers.

ikaw at ako,
sa ating mundo

Ikaw nga ay ikaw
At ako ay ako….

Tadhana ko’y akin
Tadhana mo’y iyo.

Hindi kita babaguhin
Di mo ako mababago.

‘pagkat and tama sa akin
baka di tama sa iyo.

Kaya turuan mo ako’t
Turuan ka’y gagawin ko…

Ngunit ating pagbabago’y
Nasa akin, nasa iyo-

Ikaw sa ikaw mo’t
Ako sa akin ko.

Sa kaibhan nati’y
Magkaisa tyo

Sa ganito gumaganda
Ang mundo mo’t and mundo ko….

Sa ganito gumaganda
And mundo ko’t mundo mo.
(Prof. Tomas C. Ongoco)

From every luminous shore
And verdant mountains
From city clamor and barrio quietude
We have come to MLQU
Perpetual fountain to imbibe wisdom
Patriotism and rectitude.
Oh, Alma Mater, our dear MLQU!
To thee our hearts shall forever beat,
Forever and ever be true.
We shall love thee
Amidst smiles or tears.
Thy light shall never
Be dimmed by the years,
Thy light shall never
Be dimmed by the years.

Mula sa ningning ng pasigan
Luntiang kabundukan
Taga-lungsod at payapang nayon
Dumudulog sa MLQU!
Walang hanggang batis
Ng karunungan,
Kabayaniha’t karangalan.
O! Alma Mater!
Mahal na MLQU
Puso namin ay tumitibok
Kailan man tapat sa iyo.
Mamahalin ka sa dusa’t ginhawa
Liwanag kailan man
Ay hindi magdidilim!
Liwanag kailan man
Ay hindi magdidilim!

acadrmics-school of law

WE IN THE SCHOOL OF LAW MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER AND BE GUIDED AND INSPIRED BY OUR - VISION To revitalize the Law School so that it shall be faithful to its tradition of leadership and excellence in legal education, and provide proficient, ethical, social and affordable training to students to prepare them to be lawyers and leaders in a just and progressive society. MISSION To produce competent and principled lawyers who shall promote truth and justice by recruiting qualified students, developing a competent faculty, using proper and effective methods of teaching, maintaining basic infrastructure and facilities, administering the school efficiently, reaching out to the stakeholders and the public, cooperating with the government and the rest of the academic world, and ensuring quality legal education under wholesome conditions. Quick Links • Law • SEAS • SABA • Engineering • Graduate • Criminology • Architecture • SIT • KEHS The MLQU School of Law was established in 1947 as a protest against arbitrary authority by a group of men, who, believing in the supremacy of the law, decided to build a school that will provide a strong foundation for the future of young men and women committed to the cause of justice and to the service of their country & people. Fired by the idealism of the founders and benefiting from the vast knowledge and competence of their mentors, the first graduates of the school capped three berths in the first ten places in the 1948 bar examinations with only one failing to make the grade. With this record for a start, graduates of the school continued to reap honors in the country's most prestigious government exam, getting perfect scores in some subjects and obtaining very high overall percentages of passing ranging from 92.33% to 100%. The excellent showing of the school's graduates in the bar examinations during its fledgling years could be attributed to the faculty of the school that included the most illustrious names in the country's judicial system. Listed in the school's faculty roster were eminent jurists like J.B. L. Reyes, Roberto Concepcion, Carmelino Alvendia, Arsenio Dizon and a luminary lawyer like Manuel O. Chan and stalwarts in the practice of law and in other fields of endeavor, like Emilio Abello, Francisco Carreon, Magno Gatmaitan and Arturo S. Monzon, to mention a few. These men, likewise, were inspired by Dr. Leoncio B. Monzon, the first Chancellor and later President of the school when it acquired university status on May 19, 1958. It was Dr. Monzon from whose vision and leadership the founders of the school drew the courage to venture into the uncertainties of an academic enterprise. The school can look back with understandable pride to its successful alumni who are scattered throughout the Philippines holding responsible positions in the government and in private business organizations and educational institutions. Among them are former Justices Ricardo C. Puno, Sr., Isagani A. Cruz and Sedfrey Ordonez, the late Mayor of Manila, Antonio Villegas, Justice Artemio Tuquero now Dean of the College of Law, Justices Jose Vitug and Jose Melo, Atty. Augusto B. Sunico who became the president of the University, Atty. Norberto Gonzales and Atty. Lorenzo Miravite. "Accomplishment" and "Growth " - these in a nutshell summarize the history of the MLQ School of Law during the years that followed its establishment and it shall be so in the years to come.
