The CCJ Academy for Law proudly announces the selection of 48 exceptional Caribbean lawyers to be recognised as ‘Legendary Caribbean Legal Practitioners’ in the third instalment of the Academy’s Eminent Caribbean Jurist series.
Among the awardees are giants of the legal profession representing historical, transitional, and contemporary epochs of law and development in the region.
The Academy, which serves as the educational arm of the CCJ, created the Eminent Caribbean Jurist Awards Series in 2019 as a means of recognising and honouring the contribution of Caribbean jurists to the law and societal development.
The legal legends were selected by the CCJ Academy-appointed Regional Selection and Advisory Committee, which first met on 27 September 2022.
Nominations were submitted from bar associations, judiciaries, journalists, the Council for Legal Education and its law schools, other law schools in the region, professional associations, and former Eminent Caribbean Jurists.
One hundred and fifteen (nominations were received from which 48 were selected having regard to regional and temporal distribution.
As part of the project, a brief profile was prepared for each honouree by specially selected essayists.
These profiles will be compiled into a publication to memorialise the contribution of these outstanding legal practitioners to the development of law in the region.
It is anticipated that the publication will be launched and available to the public in January 2024.
As with the Academy’s previous publications, it is hoped that highlighting the lives and work of these Caribbean legal personalities will inspire the younger generation of practitioners.
