(CNS Local Life): The deadline is approaching to apply to two postgraduate programmes in international finance at Truman Bodden Law School (TBLS). Students have until 31 August to submit applications for the LLM in International Finance: Law and Regulation and the postgraduate diploma in International Finance: Law and Regulation, both of which start in September.

The programmes comprise subjects including international finance, banking regulation, international insolvency, the conflict of laws and public-private partnerships, stated a TBLS press release.

These are “part-time work-friendly programmes”, with all classes scheduled to take place at the law school in the early evening, and directed at Caymanian nationals and residents seeking career development and progression.

The programmes run in partnership with the University of Liverpool. “Successful graduates will have access to those professional benefits and opportunities that flow from the attainment of a postgraduate qualification awarded by a top-ranked UK tertiary education provider,” said the press release.

Due to the popularity of the programmes, the law school expects to offer them full-time over one year, starting in September 2019.

Mitchell Davies, TBLS director, said of the courses: “The postgraduate programmes in international finance mark a milestone for the law school’s ambitions to remain a leading provider of tertiary education in the Caribbean.

“Entering its second year of operation, the programmes have enjoyed great success due to the quality of the provision which is offered locally, avoiding the need to go abroad.

LLM course leader Laura Panades-Estruch, added, “The first year of the programme has showcased the great improvement that students have achieved in terms of their research, writing and oral communication skills. 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 second cohort of students to TBLS in September 2018.”

Garfield Ellison, who is an LLM student, said the programme “has enhanced my legal analysis and critical assessment capabilities in the field of international finance. I am now able to frame and present legal arguments in a more coherent and concise manner.”
