Chambers of: Republic of the Philippines Court of Appeals Manila Zenaida T. Galapate-Laguilles ASSOCIATE JUSTICE FOREWORD

As one leafs through the pages, the reader is treated to a detailed and me- ticulously researched subject matter that is oftentimes dealt with both in the academe and actual practice of Law. The search is rendered more facile by the author’s calibra- tion of the topics and sub heads bolstered by applicable and highly illustrative jurisprudence. This careful consideration is undoubtedly a big boon to the conscientious student, lawyer and judge as he or she wages through the labyrinth between basic principles and difficult

nuances of the myriad situations that could crop up in the determina- tion of what is a fact, status or a right that pertains to a living litigant or to a deceased person, including their heirs and legal representa- tives.

In brief, the author succeeded in his attempt to present the subject as one that is neither abstract nor circuitous.

Atty. Claridades deserves commendation and congratulations for again coming up with a book that will undoubtedly enrich our legal literature and serve as an authoritative guide not only to the students of the law but also to the members of the bench and the bar.
