About Us

Located at City Corporate Centre, Rosetta Street, Nassau, Bahamas, the Eugene Dupuch Law School (EDLS) combines rigorous academics and enriching practical experiences, with a supportive learning environment. We offer our students two dynamic programmes, with small class sizes, clinical components and an excellent success rate.

Named for the eminent lawyer and politician, the late Hon. Eugene Dupuch CBE, Q.C., the Law School provides ‘Excellence in legal Education and Commitment to Social Service’. We invite you to explore our programmes.

The 2-Year Programme is a full-time course of study for persons who hold a degree of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) from the University of the West Indies (UWI), the University of The Bahamas (UB) or another university approved by the Council of Legal Education. This programme leads to the award of the Legal Education Certificate, recognised throughout the Commonwealth Caribbean as the professional qualification for admission to practice.

Nationals of The Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands and Turks and Caicos who meet the eligibility requirements for the 2 Year Programme should apply to the Eugene Dupuch Law School. Nationals of other Commonwealth Caribbean countries may apply, however, they may be subject to a different fee structure.

At the Eugene Dupuch Law School, we are committed to the development of legal practitioners with steadfast integrity and an unwavering commitment to the Rule of Law and adherence to the ethical obligations of the profession. Our student-centered programmes offer students personalised experiences with unique opportunities to hone their skills and gain work experience. EDLS students are afforded many rich and rewarding opportunities to network with legal professionals and community leaders, participate in local and international competitions and engage in rewarding social and community outreach activities.

The 6-Month Programme offers common law professionally trained persons of any nationality, a six-month training course leading to the award of the Legal Education Certificate.
