First Lady Liza Marcos “will be teaching part time, one subject in the College of Law,” according to WVSU President Dr. Joselito Villaruz.
FIRST LADY LIZA MARCOS — The wife of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. will teach in the West Visayas State University (WVSU) as a part-time law professor.
Atty. Louise “Liza” Araneta-Marcos will be a part time law professor at the WVSU College of Law in Iloilo City.
This was confirmed by WVSU President Dr. Joselito Villaruz in an interview, saying that Atty. Liza will teach Criminal Law 1 at the West Visayas State University.
Dr. Villaruz added that the First Lady is “more than qualified” to teach in WVSU’s College of Law as the state university’s Merit Selection Board reviewed her documents, her capacity, and her qualifications in teaching.
“She was found to be more than qualified to teach the subject because of her professional experience, her teaching experience in some universities in the past and of course her qualifications,” Dr. Villaruz said.
He also said that Atty. Liza chose to teach in the West Visayas State University because her father was a native of Iloilo City.
Dr. Villaruz clarified that there’s no special consideration or special attention given to the First Lady as a part-time professor. According to him, the application process regarding Atty. Liza’s entry at the state university has been followed.
The university president added that that WVSU is an academic community which welcomes every student and faculty member regardless of age, color, gender, social beliefs, or political affiliation.
However, he admitted that he already expected mixed reactions regarding Atty. Liza’s entry in the university’s College of Law.
