Getting to know the Justices of the Supreme Court.

From Philippines Supreme Court

Who are the current Justices of the Supreme Court? The official website gives educational and personal information on the current 2011 Supreme Court. I am surprised that the dates of appointment were not posted for all.

We will continue to revise this reference list on our honorable justices, adding their birthdays and other interesting information. The fact is that they are too human, they also have families, and have noble aspirations for our country but their decisions have so much impact on the ordinary Filipinos. The Supreme Court only deals with appealed cases and certain direct constitutional questions, it determines the constitutionality of the laws passed by Congress and its final executory decisions must be followed by the Executive branch.
