Dean's Welcome Message

Dear Students,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Faculty of Law, University of the West Indies, Saint Augustine.

You are among a privileged few to have this wonderful opportunity to embark on the exciting journey that is the study of law. This is the first leg of what will be an illustrious and exciting path.  Some of you aim to be attorneys-at-law while others will use the law as a tool to better society in other ways. Law is a discipline that trains the mind to view the world in unique ways. To school you in this challenging but rewarding discipline I am confident that we have here at the Faculty of Law, Saint Augustine, an excellent team of committed and highly qualified educators and professionals who will do all in their power to shape you into the productive professionals that we need in our country and our region.

We are also fortunate to have working with us on staff, part-time and adjunct lecturers who are themselves distinguished professionals in the field of law, including two eminent Justices of the Caribbean Court of Justice.

The Faculty of Law, University of the West Indies has a long, established tradition of excellence. Saint Augustine, being the newest member of the family is confident that this tradition is in safe hands and I am looking forward to all of us, students and staff, working together to continue to build a faculty that we can be proud of.

Welcome to the Faculty of Law, Saint Augustine and Best Wishes for a successful study program.
