The New Era University College of Law (NEU-COL) participated in the 2020 Human Rights Summit Philippines held on December 7, 9, and 10, 2020 with the theme “Human Rights and South-South Cooperation”. The purpose of the summit was to bring together the government, civil society, UN partners, and other stakeholders to raise public awareness on bringing peace and development in the region.

Part of the program was the digital arts contest. Alexandra Nathalie N. Legaspi, an NEU-COL student, presented her work of art titled “The Fruit of Justice is Peace”. According to Alexandra, “[in] line with the theme, the [artwork] conveys that peace is the fruit of justice and can never be separated from respect for humanity. … It is essential for a peaceful society and nation to recognize and promote human rights.” She received a consolation prize for her entry.

The awarding for the Digital Arts Contest took place on the final day of the event. Filipino law students shared their talent in digital arts with the theme “Peace is the Work of Justice”.
