Dean Fides Cordero-Tan: UP Law Helps Online Legal Assistance Goes Live Monday, 20 April

I am pleased to announce that on Monday, April 20, 2020, at 8:00 in the morning, #UPLawHelps will go live.

This is an online legal assistance platform conceptualized and designed to handle requests for legal assistance, legal advice and education, and if necessary, legal representation for issues arising from the implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine. You may access UPLawHelps through this portal: or directly email us at

#UPLawHelps brings together the commitment, passion, expertise, resources, and networks of the entire UP Law Community — faculty, REPS, staff, students, and alumni (with a lot of friends and allies joining  in) — into one, focused effort to help our people through this pandemic.

 Sa panahon ng ligalig, buong-pusong nagkakaisa ang komunidad ng UP Law na ipagpatuloy ang paglilingkod sa sambayanan sa pamamagitan ng pagmumulat sa karapatan at pagbigay kaalaman tungkol sa mga batas at patakaran sa ilalim nitong Enhanced Community Quarantine.

UP Law helps not only because we can, but also because we must.

Dean, UP College of Law
