Truman Bodden says deadline for postgrad courses is Aug 31

The Truman Bodden Law School in the Cayman Islands is advising that the deadline to apply to the local Master of Laws (LLM) and Postgraduate Diploma in International Finance: Law and Regulation is August 31.

Both programmes are offered on a full- and part-time basis with entry in September. Classes take place during the evening making the programmes work-friendly, according to the institution.

The University of Liverpool, a leading UK University, awards the degrees.

According to Truman Bodden, successful graduates will have access to professional benefits and opportunities that flow from the attainment of a postgraduate qualification awarded by a top-ranked UK tertiary education provider. 

“These degrees aim to equip students with skills in high demand in the labour market in the Cayman Islands and worldwide,” according to the institution. 

Topics include financial institutions, banking, international insolvency, trusts, the conflict of laws, public-private partnerships and more. 

The programmes are open to Caymanian nationals, residents and international students and allow eligible candidates to apply for Cayman Islands Government scholarships.

Applications are fully online and accepted until August 31. Full details are available from the Law School’s website at www.lawschool.gov.ky. Contact the Law School if you experience any difficulties in submitting your application before the deadline at the email address provided at the end.

Mitchell Davies, Law School director, says: “These postgraduate programmes are unique in the Caribbean, offering qualified candidates the opportunity to earn postgraduate qualifications from a leading UK University from the convenience and safety of the Cayman Islands. The programmes will commence their fourth year of operation, with first successful students graduating last December.” 

Laura Panades, the LLM course leader, adds: “All successful students have shown significant improvement in the ability to look at international developments with an informed, critical eye.

The law school welcomes applications from applicants with diverse backgrounds, career stages and professional ambitions.”
