NCIP, CCDC ink legal ed partnership

LA TRINIDAD, BENGUET – Cordillera Career Development College (CCDC) and the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) – Benguet inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for a legal education externship in brief program at the Admirals Farm Park here on December 21, 2021.

Under the MOU, NCIP – Benguet will initially engage in its programs and services 12 certified law student practitioners of CCDC College of Law under the latter’s Clinical Legal Education Program (CLEP).

The CLEP externship between the law school and the NCIP is the first in the province following the issuance of A.M. No. 19-03-24-SC or Revised Law Student Practice Rule by the Supreme Court in 2019 which required all law schools to institutionalize CLEP.

It is expected to start of January and end on June, subject to renewal as determined by both parties.

The symbiotic partnership aims enhance learning opportunities of law students for them to operationally express their sense of social responsibility anchored in the administration of justice, said retired Judge Adolf Malingan, managing director of CCDC’s Legal Aid Clinic.

Malingan added that this program will likewise prepare law students for the practice of law while helping ensure access to justice of the indigenous people of Benguet. More law student practitioners are expected to be engaged soon under the MOU upon evaluation of the CCDC and NCIP – Benguet.

NCIP – Benguet director Atty. Harriet Abyadang hoped the externship will facilitate the faster and wider administration of services of their office, especially in legal department.

β€œAlthough we (NCIP) are the primary agency to serve the IPs, we are not the sole agency that’s why we also work with other agencies including the academe,” said Abyadang.

Under the MOU, law student practitioners will render data gathering and research of relevant laws and jurisprudence in relation to the cases referred by the NCIP and assist in public interest advocacies for policy formulation and implementation.

CCDC President Sherry Junette Malaya-Tagle said the MOU will hopefully pave way to other partnership arrangements between the only law school in Benguet and NCIP, as well wider engagements with communities CCDC caters to.
