The Impeachment of Chief Justice Renato C. Corona*
by Joaquin Bernas, SJ

THE IMPEACHMENT OF Chief Justice Renato C. Corona, which took place 
during the presidency of Benigno C. Aquino III, was the sixth 
impeachment attempt in the history of Philippine constitutionalism to 
impeach a high-ranking Philippine official. But it was the most 
elaborately orchestrated and the only one to reach trial stage.

The impeachment proceeding, from its initiation in the House of 
Representatives through its trial in the Senate, ran from December 2011 
to May 30, 2012. The impeachment trial was presided by Senate President 
Juan Ponce Enrile, and judgment of conviction was reached by a vote of 20-3.

The pieces in this volume are mostly reprints of Fr. Joaquin Bernas' 
articles in his weekly column, /Sounding Board/, in the Philippine Daily 
Inquirer running from December 2011 to June 2012. They are presented to 
current and future readers to illustrate the meaning of the 
constitutional provisions and how they have been applied.

JOAQUIN G. BERNAS, S.J., lawyer and professor, is Dean Emeritus of the 
Ateneo College of Law. He has been given the Serviam Award in the 32nd 
Catholic Mass Media Awards. His past positions include Superior of the 
Jesuits in the Philippines, Rector of the Jesuit Community of the Ateneo 
de Manila University, President of the Ateneo, and Dean of the Ateneo 
College and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. He has published 
various books on constitutional law.
