The School of Law and Governance (SLG), the erstwhile Institute of Political Economy, has been providing theoretical and practical training in politics, governance and diplomacy since 1995.
The Political Economy program, the SLG’s pioneer program, seeks to equip students with skills that will enable them to examine society through different lenses—philosophy, political science, economics, history, sociology—and to consider social issues not merely from a local but also from a regional and global perspective.
The Juris Doctor (JD) or Law program provides training in standard competencies expected of lawyers. Following worldwide trends in the field of legal education, and helped by its integration within UA&P and within SLG, the JD program is envisioned to increasingly adopt interdisciplinary and international perspectives.
SLG programs are anchored on the core principles of human dignity, solidarity, subsidiarity and the common good.
SLG confers the following degrees:
- Juris Doctor (JD or Law)
- Master in Political Economy (MPE)
- Master of Arts in Political Economy (MAPE)
- Bachelor of Arts in Political Economy (ABPE)
