History
 
 
History                            
 
The Eugene Dupuch Law School is named after the famed politician and lawyer, the late Hon. Eugene Dupuch.The third and most recently established law school of the Council of Legal  Education (Caribbean), the Eugene Dupuch Law School, opened its doors to its  first students in September 1998. Like its siblings, the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad and the Norman Manley Law School in Jamaica, which were both established in 1975, this school prepares students for admission to the Bar in the Caribbean territories. The Council was created by an agreement signed and ratified by contracting state parties.

To date, 48 students have graduated from the Eugene Dupuch Law School. The students have come from The Bahamas, Tirks & Caicos Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Kitts, St. Vincent & The Grenadines, Guyana and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
