Renowned for his unflagging efficiency and devotion to duty to the university, Dean Aligada is a dyed in the wool Thomasian-- starting his career in UST as a working student, doing clerical jobs in the ROTC Department, and finishing law school as a working scholar until he passed the bar with flying colors.

Dean Aligada excelled as a litigator in the law firm of the former Supreme Court Chief Justice Andres Narvasa, until the latter was appointed Supreme Court Associate Justice.

Despite his full responsibilities at the university, he pursued further studies, completing a special course in Tarrif and Taxation, and his academic requirements for a Master’s Degree in Law. He has also been a Bar reviewer in Civil Law since 1986 at UST and other premiere law schools in the Philippines.

He was married to the late Guillerma Aligada, a graduate of the UST Faculty of Pharmacy, with whom he has eight children.
