Bond-themed gala for law school

Cayman’s law students are hosting a James Bond-themed gala at the Kimpton Hotel Saturday to raise funds for the law school library.

The “Casino Royale” event revives the Truman Bodden Law School Student Society’s annual gala after a year hiatus.

Student Society President Craig Thomas said, “We are thrilled to bring back the event this year.

We would like to invite all to attend the event, or make a donation, to raise the funds necessary to help law students in the Cayman Islands reach their full potential.”

The society hopes to raise enough funds through the gala and a golf event later this year to revamp the library and pay for new educational resources.

Mr. Thomas said there was currently limited room for students to study.

Planned improvements include adding a soundproof room for group study and replacing some of the books.

“We are bringing the gala back to raise money specifically for these projects.

“It is about giving our students all the resources that they have at a U.K. university, so it will even the playing field in terms of resources.”

The event is sponsored by Walkers, Ogier, Maples and Calder, and Appleby. Tickets start at $175 for an individual and are available from
