Truman Bodden Law School

(CNS Local Life): Truman Bodden Law School (TBLS) is now accepting applications to join the second intake of students for one of two postgraduate programmes which were introduced in September 2017. The programmes lead to qualifications awarded by the University of Liverpool, UK – the LLM in International Finance: Law and Regulation and the postgraduate diploma in International Finance: Law and Regulation.

The qualifications carry with them the professional benefits and opportunities that flow from the attainment of a postgraduate qualification awarded by any respected UK tertiary education provider, stated a TBLS press release.

TBLS director Mitchell Davies said the programmes “build on the law school’s expertise and extend the range of postgraduate level legal study offered locally. At the same time, they reinforce the law school’s long-standing affiliation with the University of Liverpool in providing Caymanians and local residents with new opportunities to obtain a face-to-face outstanding legal education without leaving Grand Cayman.”

The programmes comprise subjects including international finance, banking regulation, international insolvency, the conflict of laws and public-private partnerships

Directed at Cayman nationals and residents, the LLM and postgraduate diploma will be offered on a part-time basis only over two years. Schedules are work-friendly, with all classes taking place twice weekly from 5:30pm.

As a result of the popularity of the programmes, the law school also expects to offer the programmes full-time over one year, starting in September 2019, stated the press release.

For more information, email Laura Panades, course leader. Details on the admissions procedure are available on the law school’s website; applications are open until 31 July 2018.
