Last Saturday June 16, we held the first IP workshop at the University of the Philippines DNA lab. Attending were:

  1. College of Law, Ateneo de Davao University;
  2. College of Law, De La Salle University;
  3. DNA Analysis Laboratory, NSRI, University of the Philippines;
  4. Free Legal Assistance Group [FLAG];
  5. Give Up Tomorrow Team; and
  6. Office of Legal Aid, College of Law, University of the Philippines.
