Mahal Mo Ba Ako? Shown at AdU Art Gallery

Date Posted: Jun 2, 2011 at 03:31:05 AM


The Supreme Court of the Philippines, through the office of Justice Roberto A. Abad and in cooperation with the Adamson University College of Law, mounted a photo exhibit at the University’s Art Gallery last June 13-17. Entitled Mahal Mo Ba Ako?, the show is a traveling photo presentation of the problems of case congestion in Philippine courts.

 

The opening ceremonies were led by Justice Abad, University President Fr. Gregg L. Bañaga, Jr., C.M., College of Law Dean Ma. Alicia Austria-Martinez, and Legal Affairs Office director Atty. Agnes Rivera. Also in attendance were school administrators and several faculty and staff of the University.

 

Images depicting the realities faced by litigants nationwide such as delays in trials, inadequate facilities and equipment in courthouses, and clogged dockets caught the attention of the guests. The guests were also made aware of the various Supreme Court projects through which these problems were being addressed.

 

In his message, Fr. Bañaga thanked Justice Abad and Atty. Rivera for including the University in the exhibit’s itinerary. For his part, Justice Abad explained the purpose of the project and pointed out that the Supreme Court is trying to establish a new model for hearing and adjudicating claims that combines the best features of both the adversarial and the inquisitorial systems of litigation as a way of addressing the problem of case congestion.

 

The exhibit was first opened at the Supreme Court on May 30 and has been doing the rounds of schools, malls and Halls of Justice for a nationwide engagement since then.
