Law Society: President's Message

My fellow Blackbird Law Students. On behalf of the Law Society Executive, and the Cave Hill Guild of Students Union, welcome to the University of the West Indies! As my tenure as Law Society President, and Faculty of Law Representative has officially begun, I would like to say thank you for entrusting me with your confidence to successfully lead our faculty in the right direction for the academic year 2023/2024.  The Cave Hill faculty of Law is the premier faculty across the Caribbean Region to have offered the LLB Degree. In fact, for 39 years our Campus was the ONLY UWI Location that provided a full law program to students. It therefore stands to reason, that Cave Hill, was the pioneering force for most of the lawyers practicing in the region.  

When I started my campaign, I vowed to do everything in my power to Renew Cave Hill’s Law Culture, One Issue at A Time, and with the help of the society’s executive, it is our every intention to follow through on this promise. As such, I hereby commit to serving you with transparency, integrity, accountability and communication not only as your Faculty of Law Representative, but also in my capacity as Constitutional Chairperson of the Guild of Students Union.

Having just emerged from the grasps of Covid-19, and the shackles of online school last year, the Law Society plans on serving you, the students, to make the upcoming academic year an even more memorable one! I am also pleased to announce that our executive has already met in an official capacity, and is currently in the process of executing our first set of initiatives and events for the first semester, with the unwavering help and support from the Law Faculty Admin & Staff! As such, to our new, and returning students, I implore you become involved in the various activities we have in store for you, while also placing a keen eye on your studies!

Once again, thank you for your support, and I look forward to a successful tenure!

Timothy J Roper
UWI Cave Hill Law Society President 2023/24
