Peralta swamped with teaching offers from law schools
Following his early retirement next month, Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta is being swamped with teaching offers from different law schools in the country.
“There are offers.. remedial law, criminal procedure, criminal law, and some special rules, maybe civil procedures,” Peralta told reporters after he was conferred Doctor of Laws Honoris Causa degree by the Tarlac State University on Friday, February 19, in Tarlac City.
The Supreme Court en banc approved Peralta’s request for an early retirement effective March 27, 2021, or during his 69th birthday.
Peralta was supposed to retire on 2022, or upon reaching the mandatory retirement age of 70 years old.
The Judicial and Bar Council, meanwhile, came up with a notice, announcing the opening for application or recommendation for the post to be vacated by Peralta.
Last November, the high court accepted the application for early retirement filed by Associate Justice Priscilla Baltazar-Padilla due to health reasons.
