To My Beloved Father
Trudge on, noble leader And with thy dauntless Courage Swerve not in thy glorious, tho’ thankless path, And heed not their threats and wrath; Forgive them who are nescient And With their perennial Discontent Thy goals impend; Assuage thy bitter struggle and with thy Sapient calm, O Sage! The glorious and the great Have always been exalted late And in the midst of great work condemned.
At La Salle, he joined a group of young men who planned to go by sea

“ "Salvador H. Laurel was a superb scholar at Yale. Like his father in an earlier day, he came to us in the vital formative years of his intellectual development, and remained to earn his master of laws degree (LLM) and doctorate in juridical science (J.S.D.) with highest standing. I have taught so many brilliant students from other countries at Yale Law School. Doy was one of the very best and has always been one of my favorites. His papers and comments were always informed, perceptive, wise, creative and deeply dedicated to the public and common interest. His deepest loyalty and devotion is to his own country, but he is aware of a larger interdependent world."
Laurel later married Celia Díaz, a society debutante.
In Manila, Laurel joined his brothers in the Laurel Law Offices in
Intramuros. During his early years as a barrister, he became deeply
involved with legal aid. He was appalled to discover that 94% of the
cases filed by indigents in the fiscal’s office were dismissed for
lack of counsel. This led him to found Citizen’s Legal Aid Society
of the Philippines (CLASP).
He campaigned throughout the country, convincing lawyers to join him
in his quest for justice for the poor, and by the end of that first
year, 750 lawyers had joined CLASP. In 1976, the International Bar
Association honored him with the "Most Outstanding Legal Aid
