The 2-Year Programme is a full-time course designed for persons who hold a Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) degree from the University of the West Indies (UWI) or other equivalent degree from a university approved by the Council of Legal Education.
Persons holding a degree other than a University of the West Indies LL.B. degree are required to sit an entrance examination.
Law Schools are zoned for the admission of students from participating territories of the West Indies. The Eugene Dupuch Law School is zoned for nationals of The Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands and Turks and Caicos. We welcome and encourage applicants from all territories, who meet eligibility requirements however such applicants are subject to a separate fee structure.
Upon successful completion of the 2-year programme candidates are awarded a Legal Education Certificate (L.E.C.) which is recognised throughout the Caribbean region as the professional qualification for admission to practice.
