For the very first time, Atty. Kat Legarda teaches about annulment online. You can watch parts of the lecture here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-aJXskHIjo) Marital ties are broken in the Philippines through Article 36. But is this the only course of action to address a marriage gone wrong? Together with ACCESS MCLE (www.accessonline.ph), Atty. Kat Legarda designed and created an interactive online course (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-aJXskHIjo) that will challenge the lawyers with new ideas on the subject.
Legarda, undoubtedly an expert in Family law is a law professor at the Colleges of Law of the University of the Philippines, De La Salle University, University of Sto. Tomas and Lyceum of the Philippines University. She persuaded the Philippine Supreme Court to recognize the “Battered Woman Syndrome” as a defense in People vs. Marivic Genosa. Three months after this landmark case was decided, the Anti Violence Against Women and their Children, or VAWCI law was passed.
