It is envisaged that the Guest Lecture Series will include lectures by members of the Bar in the near future. Such lectures expose our students to expertise from around the world, including in topic areas we do not presently teach.

The Washburn Summer Law Programme was again successfully hosted by the Faculty of Law over the months of May to July 2012. This programme is taught in conformity with American Bar Association criteria for summer programmes and offers two courses of approximately two weeks duration each, generally focusing on, or drawing from, the Washburn first year curriculum (Contracts, Torts, Property, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law and Procedure, Civil Procedure). Last summer the programme offered courses in the areas of Global Intellectual Property Treaty Enforcement Law and Comparative and International Taxation Law, with the co-course directors from the UWI side being Professor Eddy Ventose and Dr Trevor Carmichael. In addition to the cohort from Washburn, the programme was attended by four UWI students – Rashad Brathwaite, Alexandria Thomas, Odwin Trenton and Dario Welch. All four students performed admirably in their courses and the Director of International Legal Programs, Professor Nancy Maxwell, commented on their participation: “I am pleased to report that the UWI students performed quite well and the Washburn professors were extremely pleased with their input in the class discussions.”
Next summer’s programme will run from May to July and the two UWI co-course directors will be Westmin James (Comparative Constitutional Law) and Tom Durbin (Comparative Criminal Law and Procedure). I am pleased to inform you that the Agreement of Cooperation between our two institutions has been renewed until August 2015.
