Writ of Kaunlaran: SC's new rule forces gov't to provide more jobs, to protect workers

Joan S. Largo, dean of the University of San Carlos School of Law and Governance, happily agreed to make the “writ of prosperity” (proposed in this space last Sunday) as a centerpiece of her two-year incumbency as the newly installed president of the Philippine Association of Law Schools (PALS). xxx

The challenge is how to craft a writ to compel the government (1) to provide adequate employment to the unemployed and underemployed; (2) to assure them salaries and benefits that will feed, clothe and shelter them, without infringing on the equal rights of entrepreneurs to be rewarded for their work and the risks they take; and (3) to protect them from exploitation by unscrupulous employers, including the government itself. xxx

How to craft a doable writ of prosperity to solve these lapses, and thereby ensure wellbeing for all under the rule of law, is the major task of the PALS. To start the crafting process, Dean Largo, in her other capacity as one of the 13 holders of the Chief Justice Panganiban Professorial Chairs on Liberty and Prosperity, will deliver a lecture on Oct. 12 keynoting the subject.

WHO IS ARTEMIO? Artemio Villaseñor Panganiban Jr. (born December 7, 1937), "The Renaissance Jurist of the 21st Century" was the 21st Supreme Court Chief Justice of the Philippines. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artemio_Panganiban

Panganiban was named as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court in 1995. Justice Panganiban was the chairperson of the Supreme Court Third Division and the House of Representatives Electoral Tribunal (HRET), as well as of seven SC committees involved mainly in judicial reforms. Described by a colleague (Justice Antonio T. Carpio) as “undoubtedly the most prolific writer of the Court, bar none” he has during the last ten years penned more than 1,000 full-length decisions and ten books plus several thousand minute resolutions disposing of controversies. These include the Cocofed case, in which the court gave the Presidential Commission on Good Government the right to vote sequestered United Coconut Planters Bank shares, which had been acquired through coco levy funds. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artemio_Panganiban#Supreme_Court
