Interim Dean's Welcome Message

Welcome to the Cave Hill Law Faculty! The Cave Hill Law Faculty has a long tradition of excellence and service to the Caribbean region and I am confident that you will find your experience here an enriching and rewarding one. As the oldest Law Faculty in the region, the Cave Hill Law Faculty has an impressive and extensive network of past and present students that spans the entire Commonwealth Caribbean and beyond. Our alumni occupy many of the highest offices in government and the judiciary and continue to give stellar service to the region. This year we look forward to celebrating the Faculty’s 50th anniversary with our past and present students as we reflect on the Faculty’s accomplishments to date and anticipate its continued contribution to Caribbean jurisprudence and to the region over the next 50 years.
 
The Cave Hill Law Faculty has an outstanding team of academic staff from diverse nationalities, backgrounds and professional experiences. Many of them are the leading regional scholars in their fields and often act as resource persons for Caribbean governments and regional and international organizations. The Faculty also prides itself on offering a high quality and dynamic academic programme which allows for realisation of students’ full academic potential as well as for their personal development and growth outside of the law. The Faculty continues to offer new and exciting electives such as Forensic Criminology, Gender and the Law in the Commonwealth Caribbean and Commonwealth Caribbean Sports Law and to innovate in the design and delivery of its programmes. From this year, the Faculty is offering its first year programme both face-to-face and remotely and last year it rolled out two new double Masters degrees – the UWI-Leuphana Double LL.M and the LL.M-Executive MBA with the Cave Hill School of Business. Above all, in its teaching the Faculty remains committed to supporting creative and critical thinking, effective oral and written communication skills and strong ethical values in its students.
 
You are encouraged to take full advantage of the Cave Hill Law Faculty’s, and the Campus’, wide range of academic and non-academic activities. Ranging from study visits, mooting competitions, various student clubs and entrepreneurial and sports activities, these all  form an integral part of the rich learning experience offered by the Cave Hill Campus and its Law Faculty.
 
I once again warmly welcome you to the Cave Hill Law Faculty and offer my best wishes for a successful and memorable time with us.
 


Mrs. Nicole Foster
Interim Dean of Law, Cave Hill Campus, and University Dean of Law
