FEU Institute of Law or Lyceum Makati College of Law

Which is better in terms of:

BAR passers for the last 10 years?
Faculty composition?
Facilities and other academic resources?
Attrrition rate?
Tuition and other Fee's?
Student environment?

Your response will be highly appreciated.

    this is not meant to take away anything from Lyceum, but just to state some facts about FEU.

    FEU has produced 44 Bar Topnotchers (excluding the FEU-DLSU placers)..

    With 4 Bar First Placers and one of the 5 schools which has a Supreme Court Justice as its alumnus.

    It also produced several justcies of the court of appeals, and sandigan bayan, and an ambassador to the United Nations.

    FEU is also in the Top 10 Law Schools with most Bar passers from 2001-2010.

    Recently, the insitute of Law has relocated to the Makati Campus, and hopefully we'd see more promising results as it targets the professional/ working class in Makati.

    the dean of lyceum college of law in makati was a high flyer at UP law where she studied. she's my batchmate in high school.

    Thanks for the feedback. Looking forward for more?

    pwede din ba malaman *** background ng mga profs sa lyceum? puro UP law grads din ba?
  • nikkilovenikkilove Member ✭✭✭
    ^ no problem.

    id go for/ consider alumni prominence though more than anything else.

    your alumni will always be a part of you.

    they will serve as your benchmark, inspiration and encouragement in the practice of your profession.

    from the gravevine:

    I was told by my colleagues that Jinggoy Estrada was kick-out from UST College of Law.
    He transferred then to Lyceum but eventually abandoned his schooling as he finds it ISKUL BUKOL.

    But that was 1990s.

    The alumni network is very very important.

    to a died-in-wool UP grad, alumni networks is a whole load of CRAP. you didn't study just so you can get ahead by knowing a lot of people.

    a bit ironic, when you yourself posted that the Dean of Lyceum is a UP grad, amd that she was your schoolmate.

    im sure you wouldnt care if she wasnt a UP grad.

    hindi naman direct na palakasan ang alumni.

    like sa PT, some of our classmates who passed the US boards were able to refer us to their employers,

    but we still have to pass our US boards,our Toefl and Fccpt credentialing,

    we also still need to pass the employers interview and screening,

    our classmates also got good impressions from the employers to they prioritized our schoolmates.

    i think thats natural.

    para naman napaka fair ng UP, eh di ba ang medicine nyo priority anak ng mga alumni mg med nyo. :rolleyes:

    if that's true than i'm not aware. but then, one could easily verify that by the recurrence of family names :lol: UP diliman alone produces more than 100 magna cum laudes and several hundred (thousands?) of cum laudes a year. UP PGH accepts 150 new students a year from those (the pre-meds that is.) good luck if you're not even in those GWA brackets.

    Go for FEU.. they have a good set of professors. I do not know alot about the Lyceum though.
  • KingofDexKingofDex Member

    would you mind to share the background of professors that you know in FEU Law School as well as Lyceum? Thanks
  • nikkilovenikkilove Member ✭✭✭
    FEU has an eclectic set of professors, unlike UP, mostly UP law grads prof nila, UST, mostly Thomasian lawyers, etc.

    FEU has always had UP, Ateneo, San Beda, UST and FEU law grads as members of their faculty, in fact even the current Dean is an Ateneo Law Grad.

    unsolicited advice na lang din,

    but to be honest, a law school may have a good set of professors, great facilities, comvenient location or prominent alumni,

    but if you dont feel the vibe, or the compatibility with the school, you may struggle with your studies anyway.

    just follow where you feel your choice is leaning, parang mas naka lean ka sa Lyceum, it maybe the school that will lead you to fulfilling your dreams in becoming a lawyer.

    kung san ka kumprotable or inspired, that should be your first comsideration.

    good luck.
