Mindanao State University Law dean Alizedney Ditucalan welcomed the news that a Bachelor of Laws or Juris Doctor degree can now be considered equivalent to a doctoral degree in other non-law academic disciplines.

The resolution was approved by the Legal Education Board, and was made for the purposes of appointment/ employment, ranking and compensation.

The abogado defended LEB’s decision from critics who look down on a JD or LLB degree.

“Sa mga tumaas ang kilay dahil sa JD equivalency at pilit minamaliit ang JD or LLB degree. Hindi sa pag-mamayabang. I am a holder of Master of Laws and candidate for Doctor of Laws. Isa lang masasabi ko, earning a JD/LLB degree ay buwis buhay,” said Ditucalan.
