FOR the first time ever, a former Securities and Exchange (SEC) chairperson is giving an online lecture on the rules governing “Corporations Vested with Public Interest.” Atty. Teresita Herbosa and Access MCLE have designed an interactive online course that will impact banks and quasi banks, non stock savings and loan associations, pawnshops, corporations engaged in money service business, preneed, trust and insurance companies and other financial intermediaries.
While serving as the chairperson of the SEC, Herbosa implemented significant reforms in the commission and introduced changes to the Corporation Code of the Philippines. Her proposed amendments passed legislative process and were reenacted in 2019 as the Revised Corporation Code of the Philippines, which together with a colleague, she authored in a book titled “The Revised Corporation Code, Its Theories and Applications.”
Herbosa, who ranked 16th among the successful examinees in the 1977 Bar Examinations, is now a professor at the University of the Philippines College of Law and the De La Salle University College of Law. Prior to serving as the SEC Chairperson from 2011 to 2018, she engaged in private practice of law at the Angara Abello Concepcion Regala and Cruz Law Offices (Accralaw) specializing in litigation and dispute resolution for 33 years. She has rejoined Accra as Of Counsel in 2019. SPONSORED CONTENT
