The Future of this Nation: DLSU-USG Judiciary held its annual “Law and Politics Youth Summit” in partnership with Rising Tigers Magazine.





July 20, 2024 - The DLSU-USG Judiciary held their annual flagship event “Law and Politics Youth Summit 2024” at De La Salle University - Manila in partnership with the most distributed business and leadership magazine in the country, Rising Tigers Magazine. Law and Politics Youth Summit 2024 is the Judiciary Department's flagship event for 2024 which aims to discuss the specifics of legal advocacy and how it is important for the Filipino youth to engage in politics and the study of law. Further, it also has the goal of portraying the benefits of being politically aware in modern society. The speakers of this event are also encouraged to present the different ways of how they can inspire the youth to participate in their legal advocacies. 


The speakers are Atty. Erwin Argues, the Legal Consultant and Representative of Cong. Margarita Nograles, and Atty. Lambert Yancy Garganta, Professor under the Department of Commercial Law at the De La Salle University.


The Chief Magistrate of the DLSU-USG Judiciary Matt Dylan Geli gave his opening remarks.


 “You are not just the future of this nation; you are its present. Your thoughts, your actions, your dedication can shape the laws that govern us and the policies that guide us. You have the power to ensure that our legal and political systems evolve to meet the needs of our changing world.”


The Chief Marketing Officer of Rising Tigers Magazine shared the importance of understanding Law and Politics.


“The legal profession demands courage to defend the voiceless and challenge injustices, It is about understanding complexities of human behavior, morality, and the dynamics of power. And above everything else, it demands empathy and integrity to comprehend the struggles of others, to connect to them, and to uphold the truth.” Andria Terese Nicolas, Chief Marketing Officer of Rising Tigers Magazine. 




“As an advocate or as a legal advocate or lawyer, it’s important to open up everything to the people. When we talk about in private practice to your client, you open up all of the applicable avenues where he or she can pursue his or her rights.”


“You may explore said legal advocacy or said promotion of legal advocacy through the use of social media. Because, in this way, you are one click away from disseminating knowledge. You are one click away from sharing with a wider group of people what the law is about, how they can proceed with the process, or what are the rights of said people.” Atty. Lambert Yancy Gaganta.


“For the long term, we must foster a culture of continuous learning and development. The world is constantly changing, as Cong. MIgs said earlier, and it is changing rapidly. Staying informed and adaptable is crucial. Providing opportunities for ongoing education and professional development in the fields of law can help the youth stay current and effective in their advocacy efforts, encouraging lifelong learning.” Atty. Erwin Argues


For the closing remarks,  Magistrate and the Project Head for the  Law and Politics Youth Summit 2024 Juleana Nuguid shared her message to the Youth about their importance in the Judicial system.

“This year, we chose the theme of Exploring the role of the Filipino Youth in the judicial system because of its critical importance in shaping the future of our societies. The active involvement of young people in the judicial system is vital for ensuring justice, equality, and human rights. It empowers the next generation to understand, engage with, and influence the legal processes that govern our lives. By focusing on this theme, we aimed to equip each of you with the knowledge, skills, and motivation to become active participants and leaders in the judicial system.”

“Allow me to cite a legal maxim, “Lex Prospicit, Non Respicit” – the law looks forward, not backward – embodies the spirit of our discussions today. It reminds us that our efforts in the judicial system are about building a future where justice prevails, a future shaped by the proactive and informed involvement of our youth.”

The University Student Government - Judiciary of De La Salle University is the sole body vested with judicial power to provide legal aid and settlements to the grievances of the student body. It stands to uphold peace, equality, and accountability among constituents of the university.
