About Lian Buan

Lian Buan covers the justice and corruption beats for Rappler.

She reports on the Supreme Court, the Sandiganbayan, the Court of Appeals, the Court of Tax Appeals, trial courts, the Department of Justice and all its attached agencies, the Office of the Ombudsman, the Commission on Audit, and the Integrated Bar of the Philippines.

She’s constantly watching herself whether she covers the Bench and the Bar too much that she forgets who justice is for – the people. Every day, she vows to do better.

She is a 2020 Jaime V. Ongpin Fellow. She hosts Rappler’s legal podcast Law of Duterte Land.
