Lawstude versus Work

Traveling is such a rare occurrence for me this year and in those few instances that I got to go out of the Metro, majority of them are even work-related. But I am not complaining. I have made my choice. So, if there is a chance that I could combine my work and my passion in a trip, then I would certainly exploit that chance to the hilt.

Is The Right To Travel Absolute?

From the express provisions of the law, there are only three cases where a person is not allowed to travel; these are in the interest of national security, public safety or public health.

“The liberty of abode and of changing the same within the limits prescribed by law shall not be impaired except upon lawful order of the court. Neither shall the right to travel be impaired except in the interest of national security, public safety, or public health, as may be provided by law. – Art III ,Sec 6 Philippine Constitution”

Thus, a leader of a terrorist group may be restrained from leaving or entering a country in the interest of national security. Health officers may also restrict access to contaminated areas and also quarantine those already exposed to the disease sought to be contained. Where there is threat of a volcanic eruption, for example, residents in the affected area may be forced to evacuate and prevented from returning until the danger is over.

Jazzin' D' Urban Lake

Man-made lakes are common in the Philippines. Famous ones include the Burnham Lake in Baguio and Caliraya Lake in Quezon. And since there is an unmistakable love affair between man and water, these lakes are usually the main attraction in a place where man frequently go such as in a park or a resort. So, it is no wonder that corporate real estate developers include artificial lakes as part of their community.
