The Embodiment of Unparalleled Legal Brilliance  
Serafin Cuevas is the most fascinating figure in TV nowadays. Cuevas, 83, the lead counsel for the defense in the aired-live impeachment trial of Philippine Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona, is a debater’s wet dream. 
He's what law students aspire to be, and what other lawyers think they are too. 
The wise and witty Cuevas,, the lead author of the High Tribunal trial manual and member of the University of the Philippines Law Center Committee which drafted the Board of Crimes, is a retired Supreme Court Associate Justice and a former Justice Secretary.
Serafin Cuevas has earned the deep respect of even his legal opponents, captured the public imagination, and earned his place in history.

The oath taking (and souvenir pictorials) of the Senator-Judges took place just last December 14 then went into Christmas recess.
Legal experts say that the now-detained former President Gloria Arroyo's appointment of Corona less than two months before the presidential election in 2010 was illegal. Corona didn't resign. President Benigno Aquino III  has pu…
