The Faculty of Law was established at the University of the West Indies in 1970 with headquarters at the Cave Hill Campus. Its primary objective is to provide for an academic qualification which is a compulsory prerequisite to professional legal training for lawyers in the Commonwealth Caribbean. However, the traditional basic legal skills of concise and pertinent oral argument, systematic and relevant presentation of essential issues, clarity and presentation of essential issues, clarity and precision of written opinions and detached and balanced judgement are also considered useful and reliable skills for other professions, such as those in the Accountancy, Banking and Commerce sectors.
The Faculty of Law offers both an undergraduate and a post-graduate programme.
