The College of Law is one of the seven colleges of De La Salle University. The College originally began at the Bro. Andrew Gonzalez Hall along with the College of Education. It moved to Bonifacio Global City under the new "Rufino Campus" in Academic Year 2016-2017.
The college was founded on the principles of human rights and civil liberties. The mission of the college was to create morally grounded and well-rounded individuals ready to serve the oppressed and take a stand on these issues. This became the blueprint for all subjects in the college regardless of the selected area of study for each student, which was a first in Philippine legal education. Another revolutionary practice was the use of "The Green Notes." These were made to aid students in reviewing for all legal topics in lieu of fraternity and sorority assistance, as such groups were prohibited by the school. Student organizations, however, continue to thrive among the students.
In terms of performance, the school continues to progress as manifested by the top performances of the first set of pioneer batches. Simultaneously, the faculty has experienced rapid growth in relation to the meteoric rise in the student population. Other innovations include the BGC campus and its groundbreaking facilities, among many others.
