“Grand Cayman is conveniently located internationally and is a direct flight away from many major airports!”
The Truman Bodden Law School, with its small class sizes and constant student teacher interaction, provides an ideal learning environment to begin a career in law. Living in the Caribbean, while obtaining a University of Liverpool degree also provides a fantastic opportunity to live and study abroad. Mixing with people of different backgrounds and cultures means gaining an education both inside and outside of the classroom.
The institution is situated in central George Town which is very convenient, a five minute drive from Grand Cayman's international airport which has direct flights to a variety of locations such as Jamaica, Miami, New York, Canada and the UK.
“The opportunity to study in paradise is a huge bonus for me, why choose rainy England when I can read law on the perfect white sand of Seven Mile Beach?”
Why study at the Truman Bodden Law School in the Cayman Islands? For me, the link to the University of Liverpool was critical to my choice. The fact that the Law School awards University of Liverpool degrees enables me to get all the additional adventure and experience that comes from studying in the beautiful Cayman Islands, but at the same time be secure in the knowledge that my qualification comes from a respected university that is a member of the elite Russell Group of Universities in the United Kingdom. The link with Liverpool also helps to ensure the very high quality of the faculty staff in the Cayman Islands.
The Truman Bodden Law School also has the significant advantage of a low student to staff member ratio that means that students have exceptional access to lecturers for help and guidance. This is a particularly important point in relation to law studies as law involves learning a new vocabulary, so being exposed to a high level of discussion and argument not only gives breadth and depth to the subject, but also makes undertaking the course very enjoyable.
There are also plenty of opportunities at the Law School to participate in activities outside of formal classes that are fun and help to develop useful skills, for example, mooting competitions and the pro bono Legal Befrienders scheme where students can support qualified lawyers giving legal advice help to real people with real problems. Such skills prepare students not only for careers as lawyers but also for diverse careers in policy-related fields, such as government, international organisations, the voluntary sector, and in business.
“TBLS provides unrivaled student support because of the small student numbers!”
The Truman Bodden Law School provides me with the opportunity to pursue a qualifying law degree, while continuing my career as a Detective with the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.
The Truman Bodden Law School provides many benefits which larger law schools just cannot match; small class sizes allow for interaction and discussion with lecturers. Lecturers are accessible and operate a genuine open door policy and the diverse background of the student body adds breadth and experience to class discussions.
Due to the Law School's links with the University of Liverpool and access to the University's online resources, it is a small institution with a big reputation. It represents the best of both worlds, for me it's a win, win solution for studying a law degree!
