Law

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.
