About The Truman Bodden Law School (TBLS)
The Truman Bodden Law School (TBLS), formally known as the Cayman Islands Law School, is situated in George Town, the capital of the Cayman Islands and has been in operation since 1982.
The Law School is affiliated to the University of Liverpool in the UK, which validates and awards the undergraduate degree programme. The University of Liverpool is a Russell Group University (equivalent to the US Ivy League) and therefore the degree is internationally recognised.
Bachelor & Professional Programmes: Now in its 38th year, TBLS is an affiliated institution of the University of Liverpool (UK), and it currently offers the following programmes:
- i) the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) Degree (LL.B) of the University of Liverpool, which is offered over three years (full-time) or five/six years (part-time)
- (ii) LL.M in International Finance of the University of Liverpool, which is offered over two years (part-time). It is intended to also offer the programme on a full-time basis from September 2019
- iii) the Postgraduate Professional Practice Course (PPC) (full-time), to eligible students, under the oversight of the Cayman Islands Legal Advisory Council and Oxford Brookes University. After successful completion of the PPC’s Qualifying Examination, which is awarded by Oxford Brookes University, students must complete 18 months of articles of clerkship. After completion of articles, the qualification as Attorney-at-Law of the Cayman Islands is earned.
All TBLS degree programmes are awarded by the University of Liverpool, England. The law degree is recognised by the Joint Academic Quality and Standards Committee of England and Wales, as a Qualifying Law Degree, which ensures that all TBLS LL.B students are eligible to pursue postgraduate professional qualifications in the UK. The LL.B degree is also recognised by the Legal Advisory Council of the Cayman Islands as a Cayman Qualifying Law Degree. All TBLS classes are taught in small groups, enhancing the teaching and learning experience.
