History
 
The Saint Ferdinand College School of Law has been established to respond to the clamor of parents and students alike for access to legal education. In the early 70's, a group of local lawyers considered the idea of opening a local law school, in a joint venture with any existing educational institution. It was only in the School Year 2000 - 2001 that the Board of Trustees finally approved a budget for a law school when the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) granted the application for the 4 yearl law course offering of the Saint Ferdinand College, which started with sixty three (63) students enrollees after a rigid admission process of written examinations and interviews.

At this inceptiop, the College of Law occupied the entire third floor of the Lourdes Building in addition to the use of the Audio-Visual Room which is air-conditioned. It was provided with an air-conditioned Law Library with an initial investment of P 250,000.00 in books and other facilities.
