Pro Patria et Jure (For Country and Law); the motto where the people of MLQU live by.
MLQU is eponymous to former Philippine Commonwealth President Manuel Luis Quezon. Since the founding of the MLQU School of Law, its graduates gave nothing but pride to their alma mater by passing the bar exams with flying colors. Being officially accredited/recognized by the Commission on Higher Education, Philippines, also made this higher education organization an averagely selective institution. Note that some of the MLQU graduates found success in government services such as Alberto Romulo (Former Foreign Affairs Secretary) and Blas F. Ople (Former Labor Secretary and Senate President).
The school year 2015-2016 was a fruitful year for the Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU) as its law enrollment rate has risen. This year (MLQU) reached another milestone by a move to Quezon City on August 19, just in time for the celebration of the 138th birth anniversary of the city’s visionary and former Philippine Commonwealth President Manuel Luis Quezon.
Dubbed “Quezon ls Home”, the event featured MLQU’s symbolic move to continue its legacy from Quiapo. Manila, to Quezon City with the unveiling of the late portrait done by National Artist In Painting Fernando Amorsolo. Just like the school, the city was named after the former president and it celebrates Quezon Day every August 19th in accordance with Republic Act 6741.
Quezon City ofﬁcials joined in the celebration led by MLQU and New San Jose Builders’ chairman Dr. Jose Rizalino Azucar and MLQU president and NSJBI co-chairman Dr. Isaganl Germar. The event was held at the MLQU School for Professional Advancement and Continuing Education (MLQU SPACE) located near MRT-Kamuning in Quezon City.
