Law students get in-service training


Share post:

BARBADIAN LAW STUDENTS traded the classrooms of the Hugh Wooding Law School for front row seats into the real life operations of the District “A” Magistrates’ Court.

The first-year students at the Trinidad-based institution – ranging in ages from 22 to 33 – are taking part in an in-service training programme organised by the Attorney General’s chambers.

The would-be lawyers are on attachment to various departments, including the Land Registry, Corporate Affairs and Intellectual Property Office and the Ministry of International Business.

On Friday, attorney at law and acting deputy registrar of titles at the Land Registry, Angela Knight, accompanied the students as they sat in on court proceedings. The supervisor, who is attached to the programme that runs from June 1 until August 5, said a stipend was given to students to assist with their second year. (TKS)
