Courts law or equity

Are Philippine courts courts of law or courts of equity?

Philippine courts are both courts of law and equity. Hence, both legal and equitable jurisdiction is dispensed with in the same tribunal. (U.S. vs. Tamparong)

Even though this is the case, equity still does not apply when there is a law applicable to a given case (Smith Bell Co. vs. Court of Appeals). Equity is availed of only in the absence of a law and is never availed of against statutory law or judicial pronouncements (G.R. No. 128576).
