US law school conducts course in Cayman

Twenty-eight students from Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) School of Law combined spring break with education to participate in a post-graduate course held in Cayman at the Courtyard Marriott during the week of 7 March.

The course, entitled International Business Organizations, was taught by two CWRU faculty: Professor Andrew Morriss, Professor and Director of The Center for Business Law and Regulation and Professor Craig M. Boise, Assistant Professor of Law.

There were five on island sessions which covered a broad range of topics including business law, offshore entities and international criminal law issues.

‘We chose the Cayman Islands because we wanted our students to be exposed to one of the leading financial centers in the world,’ explained Professor Morriss. ‘Upon graduation our students will be prepared to structure transactions through Cayman entities and have now met the professionals who make those transactions happen.’

Local speakers were coordinated through the Cayman Islands Investment Bureau and included professionals from both the public and private sector.

Case School of Law is a part of CWRU a private university located in Cleveland, Ohio.
