Welcome to the Eugene Dupuch Law School (EDLS), one of the leading Law Schools in the Caribbean. At EDLS we believe in student success. We empower our students to become flexible thinkers and problem solvers who will thrive in the twenty-first century. With a 4:1 student-to-faculty ratio and small class sizes, our students have enhanced learning experiences and can readily take advantage of opportunities for personal and professional development. We work to create a supportive learning environment that prepares students to become well-rounded, competent and ethical legal professionals who will be of important value and service to the communities in which they live.

We work with, teach and learn from the Caribbean’s brightest minds, who are making important contributions to the legal profession. We provide many enriching hands-on experiences for students to hone their skills, engage with EDLS alumni and other industry professionals, thought leaders, the community and contribute to nation-building.

I am privileged to work with a Law School that provides excellence in legal education and is committed to social service. We invite you to explore our programmes.
