Eugene Dupuch Law School Resumes Face-to-Face Instruction After Two Years of Virtual Classes

Nassau, Bahamas, 4 October, 2022 – After temporarily suspending in-person instruction due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Eugene Dupuch Law School (EDLS) officially reopened its Rosetta street campus to 122 students on September 20th, 2022. The resumption of face-to-face classes represents a major milestone for the institution marking the highest student enrollment in its 24-year history.

“We are so happy to welcome all our students to the 2022/2023 academic year,” said Tonya Bastian Galanis, Principal of the Eugene Dupuch Law School. “We are especially delighted that after a two-year absence, some of our students, namely our Year II students, are back with us in person.

For more than two decades, EDLS has led the way as the premier hub for aspiring legal minds in The Bahamas. Established by the Council of Legal Education, the Eugene Dupuch Law School opened its doors to welcome a small group of 28 students in September 1998. With the help of its small but dedicated faculty and staff, the institution experienced monumental growth eventually moving into its new state-of-the-art facility at City Corporate Center on Rosetta Street in Palmdale.

Since then, EDLS has matriculated approximately 600 students who are now practicing lawyers across the globe. “Our student population is diverse, comprising nationals of countries around the Commonwealth Caribbean and beyond. We are looking forward to stimulating and enriching engagements. We wish each student a successful year,” Principal Galanis added.

Through its training programmes, social outreach, community activities, and collaboration with civil society, the Eugene Dupuch Law School consistently strives to meet the needs of its students, contribute to the advancement of the region, and support the rule of law.
