JMC OPENS COLLEGE OF LAW

To address the increasing demands for more law schools in the Davao Region, a new college of law has emerged in the city after 54 long years. The JMC College of Law has been established to provide affordable but quality legal education. 

Davao's population has grown tremendously over the years and the existence of only two law schools in the city has forced many qualified candidates to access legal education beyond its boundaries. The Southern part of the Davao region only has one law school,while the northen part has two (2). But with the birth of the JMC College of Law, more law students will have better access to a kind of education that will prepare them for a career in the legal market and train them for service, reponsibility and leadership.

The JMC College of Law offers two curricula: a five-year and four-year program. The five-year program is the first in Davao and in Mindanao as it was designed to cater to the needs of working students.

School Founding President Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy ensures that the law school has the most complete and advanced facilities. At the main lobby is a central atrium/student lounge where students and faculty may gather informally in study groups, meet for extracurricular activities, or simply relax in between classes. The classrooms/lecture halls are adjacent to each other, very spacious, well-lit, and fully air-conditioned with separate comfort rooms for male and female students.

Teaching is even made more effective with the help of overhead LCD projectors, and to guarantee a high degree of classroom interaction, the size of all first year classes will be kept to 40 or less.

Each lecture hall is provided with a strong internet connection to allow the faculty members to incorporate the latest information while delivering lectures. It is also well-furnished with a Moot Court Hall which is like a practical court room for students to get accustomed to the atmosphere of courts, a perfect setting for real court scenarios to hone their skills in law and advocacy of law. Its full air-conditioned library provides an ideal and peaceful ambience for undistracted pursuit of knowledge and skills.

With its highly qualified law professors, who are judges, prosecutors and attorneys from a variety of private practice areas, Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy believes that legal practitioners who are excellent, effective, ethical and socially responsible and who will become advocates of peace and equal opportunities for all, will soon emerge.

JMC takes pride in this milestone for it gives the institution the opportunity to continue its tradition of excellence and become the training ground for distinguished  legal practitioners and public servants.

The College of Law is the brainchild of Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy and takes a cue from his excellent leadership, thus,bannering the tagline, "EXCELLENCE IS THE NORM."

JMC Represents Mindanao In BSP International Jamboree

            Mindanao gets represented in an international scouting jamboree by the Jose Maria College (JMC). The Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP) unit of  JMC sent three delegates to the Singapore International Jamboree 2015 last November 17 to 22, 2015 which took place in  Sarimbun Scout Camp, Jahlan Bahtera, Singapore, also known for being the scouting hotspot of Singapore.

            Scouter Bryan Alberto, JMC’s BSP coordinator, Giorgio Stefano de Castro (Grade 6) and Judah Meir Macquiling (Grade 7) were the only delegates from Mindanao. Furthermore, Alberto served as member  of the international service team for the said gathering. During their five-day stay in the camp, the jamboree participants studied and experienced for themselves the different aspects of the culture of Singapore and how it boomed into a progressive country. “The aim of the international jamboree was to promote camaraderie among scouts from all over the world,” Alberto said in an interview.

           This year's jamboree revolved around the theme, "Celebrating our Journey through Friendship, Adventure and Dreams," and was participated in by around 3,000 scouts coming from different countries such as Singapore, Philippines, Cambodia, Japan, Bangladesh, Korea, Australia, Nepal, Thailand and Taiwan. “I had the chance to talk to the different leaders in the International Scout Organization,” Alberto added. “Hopefully, we will be able to participate in the next international jamboree to expose our students more to different international cultures,” he further said.
