The site includes discussions on legal matters relating to entrepreneurship, contracts, corporate affairs, HR and labor, money and finance, as well as other business-related topics principally in the Philippines.

The hope is to make the Law Central, Philippines a comprehensive collection of legal tools, information and resources for the Philippines. This endeavor is made easier by the fact that helpful resources and sites are already online.
This is also intended to be partly driven by all users. There is a "submit" or "add" link in some menu items, i.e., new entries for law firms, law schools, blawgs and the Philippine Online Law Dictionary. The other items, however, are not yet available for general use. Please use the Contact Us menu should you want to submit other helpful resources, primarily books and journals. Submissions in the directories and resources, as well as comments and suggestions, are most welcome.

It has been some time since the last update on this site. The reason? The creation of a new legal blog or blawg - still called the Philippine e-Legal Forum (click here to view the new site), which is an adjunct of the JLP-Law site.
All existing contents will be retained here. However, some of the articles here will be reproduced and new articles will be posted at the new site. You can subscribe using bloglines or other subscription service (click here to subscribe to Philippine eLegal Forum) or through email (register here).
Anyway, the respective titles of the new contents at the new site are automatically posted here. Check the articles at the left sidebar.
