About the Folio 
  

Dito sa UP Law: Many Voices, One Community is UP Law’s first ever literary folio retrospective of the COVID-19 pandemic. Drawing inspiration from various multicultural literary folios published by international academic institutions, this online publication aims to capture the diverse experiences of the UP Law Community in the most challenging period in recent history, expressed in literary and visual art forms. Apart from humanizing the harshness of academic life, the publication will also reflect a different color to the public’s perception of the life of the students, faculty and admin staff of the UP College of Law by providing a platform for creative talents that are usually glossed over as unrelated to academic endeavors.

Tanging mga mata ang nag-uusap sa pagitan ng mesa palitan ng ngiti’t sulyap sa bawat umaga.   Ang tinginan ay naging patagong asaran...
