Short description:
The Eugene Dupuch Law School is named after the famed politician and lawyer, the late Hon. Eugene Dupuch. It is the third and most recently established law school of the Council of Legal Education (Caribbean). The Council of Legal Education was created by a treaty signed and ratified by countries in the Caribbean Community.
The Eugene Dupuch Law School opened its doors to its first students in September 1998. Like its sibling schools, the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad and Tobago and the Norman Manley Law School in Jamaica, which were both established in 1975, the Eugene Dupuch Law School prepares students for admission to practice in the Caribbean territories. To date, students who have graduated from the Eugene Dupuch Law School have come from Anguilla, Antigua, The Bahamas, Barbados, the Turks & Caicos Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Kitts and Nevis, St.Vincent & The Grenadines and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
