Bachelor of Laws - LLB
Our long-established LLB degree is a highly regarded programme, being the only qualifying LLB awarded and actually taught, in conjunction with the University of Liverpool, in the Caribbean region. The benefits of the Truman Bodden Law School (TBLS) of the Cayman Islands undergraduate degree programme involve the experience of studying for a degree in an island paradise with a relaxed way of life.
It also gives students the added advantage of obtaining a rigorous degree validated and supervised by a highly respected UK University, with the added bonus of small group teaching, individual attention and a genuine open-door policy. This is truly the ideal environment for a budding lawyer to study and thrive under the supervision of our dedicated academic team. The Law School boasts excellent feedback from current students who maintain that the personal touch and quality of teaching received is "exceptional".
The programme focuses on the study of law as an intellectual discipline and can either form the first step towards qualifying as a solicitor or barrister or as preliminary training for a range of other careers.
TBLS seeks to admit each year well-qualified applicants from a range of educational backgrounds who can demonstrate their aptitude, suitability and preparedness to pursue a degree in law. TBLS welcomes applications from mature candidates and seeks to give each such applicant full and individual consideration.
