Law students’ fees up

BARBADIAN LAW STUDENTS in Trinidad were stunned yesterday to find that their $300 fees to the Hugh Wooding Law School had gone up by more than $2 000.

The increase results from the Government’s decision to make University of the West Indies (UWI) students pay their tuition cost, a break in tradition from when the state undertook the entire bill.

But upset students only found out yesterday, at the point of registering, that they would indeed have to pay part of tuition after they were told they would not have to.

Vasco Perry, last year’s class rep, told the DAILY NATION that while he is looking to secure the payment, he hopes education authorities will intervene to get the Hugh Wooding Law School to grant them an extension.

“I hope someone makes contact and asked that there be leniency for the Barbadian students and request an extension for the payment of fees so that we will have enough time to sort out our business,” he said.
