The Faculty of Law, launched on September 18, 2008 offers the Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree. Students have the opportunity of completing the degree programme in three years (fulltime) or in four years (part-time). Taught by a cadre of local and international experts with interdisciplinary training and experience, the programme is delivered through lectures, tutorials, casebook methods, research, seminars and moots.
An example of the Faculty’s innovative approach is the teaching of modules – such as Entertainment Law, Sports Law, and Intellectual Property – that support emerging dynamic growth sectors of the economy. In addition, the course of study provides learners with the opportunity to explore and develop an interest in the laws and legal systems of Jamaica and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).
For those wanting to practice law, this programme provides a flexible route by which to complete the academic stage of the training needed for the progression to the vocational stage of legal education or related fields.
