Profile of Cabinet Secretaries

Sec. Leila de Lima
Department of Justice

 

Atty. Leila de Lima was recently Chairperson of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR).

De Lima is known as the fiery and very vocal head of the CHR, and was one of the very first people to speak out against the November 23 Maguindanao massacre that left 57 people dead including 31 journalists. Under her term, the CHR also took an active role in addressing the surge of extrajudicial killings that have plagued the country during the Arroyo administration.

A Political Science Major who graduated from De La Salle University in 1980, she placed eighth in the 1985 Bar Exam after earning her law degree from San Beda College in 1985.
