Brief History

The Mindanao State University started operations in 1961. Although, a College of Law was provided in its Charter, the immediate need for it was not yet felt and demanded by the circumstances then prevailing. The concerned in the Mindanao, Sulu and Palawan area which was intended to be the primary service area of the University was in the field of education, engineering and the arts and sciences. Recent events, however, justified the immediate opening of the MSU College of Law.

On February 4, 1977, President Marcos, in keeping the Constitutional provision that the “the state shall consider the customs, traditions, belief, and interest of national cultural communities in the formulation and the implementation of state policies”(Sec. 11, Art. XV, New Constitution) decreed Presidential Decree No. 1083, otherwise known as the Code of Muslim Personal Laws. The Code, in addition to the substantive provisions, provided for the creation of Shari’ah Courts and the appointment of the Shari’ah Judges who must be members of the Philippine Bar and must have passed a special Bar Examination of Shari’ah to be given by the Supreme Courts.

In the hope of assisting the full implementing of P.D. 1083 and other related Laws, the MSU College of Law was conceived, planned and authorize by the MSU Board of Regents with SHARI’AH as an addition to the standard curriculum of law schools in the Philippines.

To this end, the College hopes (1) to produce lawyers who are learned both in the Philippine law and Islamic Personal Laws, and (2) to make the College a nucleus of leadership training directed towards the achievements of the state policy of integration and national solidarity.


The MSU College of Law envisions to be a leading academic institution committed to the attainment of social justice thru legal education.
