Yesterday(March 14, 2015), the University of Nueva Caceres held its Commencement exercises with no less than its alumnus, Justice Noel Tijam, as Guest of Honor and speaker. A UNCean, he had finished Elementary and High School and first year College in the University when he moved to San Beda College where he finished AB Magna Cum Laude and his LLB degree, Cum Laude. ( This proves the solid preparation he received in the Elementary and Secondary courses from UNC).
He passed the Bar at age 22. He is now Chairman of the 5th Division of the Court of Appeals.He recalled a debt of gratitude to Dolores H. Sison whose grave he visited upon arrival, along those of noted sons of Naga city, fellow Bedan Sen. Raul Roco and Sec. Jesse Robredo. A tech savy Jurist, and a libertarian at heart, he quoted Thomas Jefferson?, that there are two dangers that the people must be protected from, ” the first is from criminals and the second is from Government. The second must be tied to the Constitution so that it does not become a legalized version of the first.” – Felicito C. Payumo
