Lacson College (formerly known as Philippine Law School)

The Philippine Law School (PLS), founded in 1915, is the fourth oldest law school in the Philippines. Only the Faculty of Civil Law of the University of Santo Tomas, the Escuela de Derecho (now Manila Law College) and the University of the Philippines College of Law, are older. It was among the first law schools to utilize English as its medium of instruction. In its early years, PLS was without question the best private law school in the Philippines. PLS boasts of having produced one Philippine President, President Carlos P. Garcia, a member of the class of 1923[1] who placed 8th in the Bar Examinations with a rating of 86.60%. Another President, Diosdado Macapagal, was a PLS law student until his sophomore year, but he later transferred to the University of Santo Tomas. The school also produced Senate President Neptali A. Gonzales, a member of the class of 1949 who placed 9th in the Bar Examinations with a rating of 92.50%. That class produced a bar topnotcher, Atty. Anacleto R. Mangaser, who holds the third highest official general average in the history of the Bar Examinations (95.85%). Only Justice Florence Regalado (96.7%) and Atty. Renato L. dela Fuente (95.95%), classmates at the San Beda College of Law, obtained higher ratings in the 1954 Bar Examinations.
