June 17, 2021

Retired Chief Justice Diosdado M. Peralta delivers an online lecture on the amended Rules of Civil Procedure earlier today, the first day of the Training Seminar on the 2019 Amendments to the Rules of Civil Procedure and Evidence.

The two-day training seminar, attended by first-level judges from Region III, Region VI, and the City of Manila, aims to familiarize the members of the Bench with the salient features of the Rules that address the issues of decongestion of dockets and unnecessary delays in the conduct of court hearings for the speedy and inexpensive disposition of cases. It is organized by the Supreme Court of the Philippines and the Philippine Judicial Academy in coordination with the United States Agency for International Development and the American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative.
