Associate of Arts - Law

Advance Justice, Solve Problems and Serve With Integrity

The Associate of Arts – Law not only provides a foundation for persons who wish to embark on further study and training for entry into the legal profession, it also addresses the needs of other persons engaged in occupations requiring knowledge of the law, such as clerks, paralegals, administrators, managers, police, and other public officers. The curriculum serves to inform persons of their rights and obligations, to engage them in the study of law as a discrete discipline requiring analytical and problem-solving skills, and to inculcate in them certain positive values which are necessary in a civilized Caribbean society.
