Why Attend the Cayman Islands Law School?

  • In 2002 CILS was awarded Qualifying Law Degree status by the English Bar Council and the English Law Society.  It is one of the very few tertiary legal education providers in the Caribbean to be ascribed this recognition. Such recognition ensures that all CILS LL.B.  students are eligible to pursue postgraduate professional training in the UK.
  • CILS is very probably the only institution in the Caribbean offering an English LL.B qualification (the award of the University of Liverpool) as an internal programme of study.
  • All full-time lecturers at CILS enjoy Recognized Law Teacher Status of the University of Liverpool. Such status is awarded in recognition of each individual full-time lecturer’s extensive law teaching experience at degree level.
  • In September 2012 the Law School intends to introduce a new LL.M Degree in International Finance: Law and Regulation. This postgraduate degree will also be the award of the University of Liverpool.
  • All CILS Degree programmes are externally assessed by examiners of the University of Liverpool’s Law School. External examiners appointed by the University further ensure that the quality of provision is equivalent to that offered by other UK Law Schools.
  • Both the LL.M Degree and the LL.B Degree (full and part-time) are the awards of the University of Liverpool.  The Liverpool Law School has been in existence for over 100 years.
  • The Liverpool University LL.M and LL.B degrees obtained through CILS are internationally recognized to the same extent as any such degrees obtained from any respected UK University.
  • The content of all courses is within the control of the CILS Course Leader.
  • Lecture and tutorial groups are small, thereby enhancing the teaching and learning environment.
  • The CILS LL.B degree is an undergraduate qualification meaning that you can study for it without the need to firstly obtain a Bachelors degree.
  • In September 2012 the Cayman Islands Law School will have been in existence for 30 years. The Law School is a Department within the Legal Portfolio and falls under the overall responsibility of the Attorney General.

CILS is a secure institution and falls under the Cayman Islands Attorney General’s Chambers and is supported by the Cayman Islands Government. In September 2012 CILS will celebrate its  30th year of operation.
