BAR MATTER NO. 730 June 13, 1997 Gentlemen: Quoted hereunder, for your information, is a resolution of the Court En Banc dated June 10, 1997 .

The records show that the plaintiff in civil Case No. BCV-92-11 was represented by Mr. Cornelio Carmona, Jr., an intern at the Office of Legal Aid, UP-College of Law (UP-OLA).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
