Official First Release of Eskriba

This photo was posted in my Instagram account (@heyimalgene) last June 2013. It was taken at the Finster Building of Ateneo during the launching of Eskriba. As you can see, Camille, Eskriba's EIC was holding the teaser issue of the first-ever school publication of Ateneo de Davao College of Law. Together with us is Eskriba's Associate Editor, Bruneson.

Despite the hectic schedule at school we still managed to come up with an issue especially prepared for Ateneo law students and professors. Some of the interesting articles included in the issue are "Health Risk Factors of Bad Study Habits," "Two Myths," "Time to Study: Where to Go?" (written by me) and "Spoil the Rod, Spoil the Child: Revisiting RA 8344."
