PHILJA – Philippine Judicial Academy
Some areas of Philippine Law are outdated because the Codes inherited from the Spanish colonial era have been substantially retained. This implies a double reality, that of updating the codes and that of updating the teaching programmes of the Law Schools. It is perhaps criminal law that suffers most from this lack of updating.
