Opening Minds, Forming Hearts

Sebastinian Office of Legal Aid (SOLA)

 

After securing the necessary permit from the Supreme Court, the Sebastinian Office of Legal Aid (SOLA) was formally opened in August 28, 1992, in honor of Saint Augustine of Hippo.

The office was created to serve as an outreach venue for legal services that will be provided to indigent and deserving parties who cannot afford the services of a lawyer. It maintains some fourth year law students who are enrolled in Practice Court subjects serving as law interns. These interns put into practice their learned knowledge by preparing pleadings in real cases and other legal papers for SOLA clients. They also appear in court following the real cases and other legal papers for SOLA clients. They also appear in court following the Student Practice Rule under the guidance and supervision of the supervising lawyers. This invaluable experience in the legal aid program prepares them to become future successful  lawyers.

SOLA is being managed by its director Atty. Ferdinand A. Tan, together with the office secretary, Ms. Ruth Balita. It has 55 law interns at present.
