These last three months saw us wrapping up our activities for 2014. I am happy to note that we were able to finish most, if not all, of the projected activities in our calendar.

These completed our regular programs for the period.

Vitug on “Coping with the Changing Landscape in Civil Law” held at the Court of Appeals Auditorium; a seminar-workshop for Substantive Law and Jurisprudence on Intellectual Property in Cebu City for the Clerks of Court of Special Commercial Courts of Regions VI, VII, and VIII and Selected Court Attorneys of the Court of Appeals of the Cebu City Station; and another on Procedural, Substantive Law and Jurisprudence on Intellectual Property for Selected Commercial Court Judges and Pairing Court Judges of the National Capital Region and the 1st to 5th Judicial Regions, in Pasay City.
