A two-day Agrarian Reform Beneficiary (ARB) Paralegal Clinic and Tactics Training was held last May 8-9, 2014 at the Legacy Suites in Boulevard, Masbate City. This activity is a follow-up course of the clinic and training that was conducted in August and November of last year.


This endeavor is a major component of the Paralegal Development Program of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).

Before the clinic and tactics session commenced, OIC-PARPO II Samuel R. Ongcal, Jr. gave an inspirational message to the ARBs through a short but meaningful story. He thanked the ARB-Paralegals for their participation and support to the programs of the Department.reg5pic11

“Through your cooperation and active involvement in the programs of DAR, its mission to improve the quality of life of ARBs through land tenure improvement, program beneficiaries development and agrarian justice delivery will surely be achieved,” PARPO Sam said.

Ines L. Codia, ARPO II from the Agrarian Reform Capacity Development Service (ARCDS) of DAR Central Office, was the resource speaker and lecturer of the activity which was attended by ARBs coming from the different Municipalities of Masbate.

During the lecture series, Codia discussed the importance of ARB Paralegals in the implementation of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) particularly the Land Acquisition and Distribution (LAD) task of the Department.

Codia emphasized that ARB Paralegals must be equipped with knowledge to come up with mechanisms in their level to resolve issues related to the CARP implementation. However, she also expressed that ARB Paralegals still need the assistance and guidance of DAR personnel.

"They are important partners of DAR… kasi sila ang nagsisilbing tulay sa community,” Codia said.

OIC-PARPO I Herald R. Tambal, OIC-CARPO Floro A. Espares, OIC-MARO Edwin C. Yanzon of DARMO Masbate City/Mobo, Legal Officer II Archimedes C. Albao also attended the activity and provided significant inputs to the ARB Paralegals.
