History

The university was established in 1947 by several eminent lawyers and justices namely: Leoncio B. Monzon; Lorenzo M. Tañada; Arsenio P. Dizon; Carmelino G. Alvendia; Jose B. L. Reyes; Manuel O. Chan; Anselmo S. Claudio. Accordingly the School of Law was born.

Inspired by the brilliance and dedication of their mentors, the first batch of the new school's graduates practically dominated the bar examinations period. Most of them followed in the footsteps of their illustrious mentors such us former Secretary of Justice Ricardo C. Puno Sr., Human Rights Advocate Sedfrey Ordoñez and Retired Supreme Court Justice Isagani A. Cruz. Two of Justice Puno's students, Jose Melo and Jose Vitug are currently Supreme Court Justices. Others have gained fame in the practice of law, accountancy, business and education.

The Law School progressed as Manuel L. Quezon Educational Institution (MLQEI), and in 1958, it achieved it's status as a university. The School of Arts and Sciences; Education; Commerce & Business Administration; Engineering; Architecture; Graduate Studies; Criminology; and Architecture were organized, and in 1982 the School of Information Technology was born. Paralegal Studies was the latest additional course offered at the School of Law.
