The law of the particular territory regulates entry into the legal profession in all the Caribbean territories, but as a result of a regional agreement the basic requirements tend to follow a common pattern. The University of the West Indies offers a Bachelor of Law’s degree (LLB), which satisfies the requirements for entry into the professional law schools, where upon graduation with a Legal Education Certificate, students are admitted to practice.
At the St. Augustine campus, students do the first year of the three-year LLB programme. Upon successful completion of the first year, students proceed to the second and third years of the programme at the Faculty of Law located at the Cave Hill Campus, Barbados.
