Memo to         :           The University Community

Subject            :           Appointment of Jose Maria G Hofileña as Dean
of the Ateneo de Manila Law School


Upon the recommendation of the Search Committee for Dean of Ateneo de
Manila Law School (ALS), I am pleased to inform the community of the
appointment of Atty Jose Maria G Hofileña as Dean of the Law School from 1
June 2018 to 31 May 2021.

Atty “Joey” Hofileña’s appointment as Dean was unanimously approved by the
Board of Trustees at its meeting last 3 February 2018. He currently chairs
the Commercial Law and Intellectual Property Department of ALS where he has
been a faculty member since 2013.  After passing the November 1987 Bar
Examinationas with flying colors, Joey joined SyCip Salazar Hernandez &
Gatmaitan and was a partner there from 1996 through 2012, practicing within
the firm’s Corporate department. He also undertook stints as an attorney at
Johnson & Gibbs in Dallas, Texas and at McDermott, Will & Emery in New York
City. Apart from teaching at the ALS, Joey is a Visiting Professor for
Commercial Law at Ateneo de Zamboanga University's College of Law. He
currently serves on the IBP Law Journal's Editorial Board.

Joey obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree (with honors) from the Ateneo de
Manila in 1983 and proceeded to the Ateneo Law School where he completed
his Bachelor of Laws degree in 1987 as Class Valedictorian and recipient of
the Evelio Javier Leadership Award. In 1990, he was conferred a Master of
Laws degree by Harvard Law School.

On behalf of the Ateneo de Manila, I would like to thank Joey for his
generosity in accepting this new mission to lead the Law School. We thank
as well Atty Sedfrey Candelaria for his valuable years of service as Dean
of the ALS for more than six years.

We are grateful to the Search Committee composed of Atty Ruben F Balane
(Chairperson), Mr Eduardo Jose E Calasanz, Fr Ismael Jose V Chan-Gonzaga
SJ, Atty Aleli Angela G Quirino, and Dr Maria Luz C Vilches. They readily
gave their time to examine, interview, and discern the potential candidates
for the deanship of our Law School.

In this era where democracy is easily threatened by fake news and
disinformation, let us pray for all those who study and practice the law,
helping us to uphold truth and justice in our land.

Jose Ramon T Villarin SJ
