Guest of honor and keynote speaker is Supreme Court Associate Justice Ramon Paul Hernando of San Beda Law Class of 1990.
The San Beda Alumni Association is giving several awards to outstanding Bedans in various fields of law. Former executive secretary Salvador Medialdea (law class of 1976) is Bedan of the Decade.
