(CNS Local Life): Applications are still being accepted to enrol in one of the two new programmes at Truman Bodden Law School (TBLS) – the master of laws (LLM) and postgraduate diploma in international finance: law and regulation – set to begin in September. Directed at Caymanian nationals and residents, the courses will initially be offered on a part-time basis with all classes scheduled to take place at the law school in the early evening.

Law school director Mitchell Davies explained the significance of the programmes, which will lead to qualifications awarded by the University of Liverpool, UK. “The launch of these two new programmes represents a further step in the law school’s goal to broaden the first rate tertiary legal education opportunities available locally without the need to go abroad,” he said, adding they represent “an evolution in the law school’s long-standing relationship with the University of Liverpool, a fitting milestone in the 35th year of the law school’s operation.”

LLM course leader Laura Panades said, “These programmes will identify and support local Caymanian talent, providing valuable skills to succeed in competitive labour markets. The number and the quality of applications received show the great potential of the peoples of Cayman.

“The law school continues to receive applications from applicants possessing a diversity of prior academic and practical experience and we look forward to welcoming the first cohort of students to TBLS in September 2017.”
