Trial Judges League Holds 16th National Convention

The Philippine Trial Judges League Inc. (PTJLI), an organization established to help the promotion of the professional growth of judges, held its 16th National Convention and Seminar at the Grand Ballroom of the Century Park Hotel, Manila last Nov. 26–28.

Headed by its National President Judge Kaudri L. Jainul, the convention carried the theme “Frontlining Judicial Independence and Moral Uprighteousness in the First Level Courts.”

Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim, who is a law practitioner himself, graced the event and delivered the welcome remarks to formally open the three-day program.

Mayor Lim urged PTJLI members to help improve the justice system in the country. He also shared to the audience his hope that the convention may give judges the time to “re-live once more [your] idealism and dedication” as they took their oaths of office.

The conference was originally slated to be held in Baguio City, but was transferred to Manila due to unfavorable conditions.
