Direct Entry Program

A student who gains admission into the LLB program with a previous degree may qualify for the Direct Entry program whereby the student will complete the LLB courses of study during a period of 2 years instead of 3 years. Entry into the Direct Entry program shall be at the discretion of the Entrance Committee and shall normally be reserved only for applicants who hold a GPA of 2.8 and above.


Applicants from the Commonwealth Caribbean


Applicants from other parts of the Commonwealth Caribbean must apply to the Senior Assistant Registrar (Student Affairs), St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago.


Applicants are reminded that the deadline date for applications must be complied with. Late applications will not be considered.

Students from Non-Contributing Countries

Following a ruling of the University Grants Committee, students from Commonwealth Caribbean Countries which have not yet agreed to contribute to the Faculty of Law will only be admitted when applicants from contributing countries have all been placed.

International Students

A limited number of international students may be admitted to the Faculty of Law, provided that there is an exchange programme or cooperative agreement in place between their home university and The University of the West Indies. Other international students who do not fall into this category may be accommodated under the University's Study Abroad Programme.


Admissions Procedure

(i) Firm offers will be made to the students selected from those who are already qualified for entry.

All applicants will receive notification of their eligibility and the decision in relation to their case when first offers are made. It is imperative that any deadlines for acceptance set by the University are adhered to.
