Easy lang! MSU Law dean issues important reminder to lawyers
Mindanao State University College of Law Dean Alizedney Ditucalan issues an important reminder to lawyers. The abogado said that lawyers are officers of the courts first before anything else.
Criticizing a court’s decision is okey. But for lawyers, we should stick to the issues of facts and law. Do we have to be reminded that “lawyers are officers of court”?

Ditucalan said that it’s okay to criticize court decisions. However, abogados like him must stick to what they know and focus on facts and law in this need to criticize rulings passed on by the court.
The abogado noted that they should not be reminded constantly of what their duties are. He emphasized that they are also part of the very institution that they are trying to discredit.
Medyo kainis kasi yung decisions, Sir!
