CCJ’s Educational Arm to Expand Focus as CCJ Academy for Law

30 Apr 2018

The Caribbean Academy for Law and Court Administration (CALCA), the educational arm of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), is embracing an expanded mandate and has been reconstituted as the CCJ Academy for Law. As a part of this new development, the Academy has been incorporated as a non-profit entity with its own legal identity.  The CCJ Academy will continue to be chaired by the Honourable Mr. Justice Winston Anderson, a judge of the CCJ.



In late 2016, consultants were engaged to develop recommendations for the restructuring, expansion and strengthening of CALCA.  The measures that are presently being undertaken emanate from those recommendations.  The CCJ Academy is now in the process of rebranding which will include a new website, new logo and other communication tools.  The 5th Biennial Conference will continue as planned, during the period 13-15 December 2018, in Kingston, Jamaica. 


For the second time, the Conference will be hosted in partnership with the General Legal Council of Jamaica (GLC) and the Conference will have a strategic focus on Caribbean legal practice and procedure, legal issues pertaining to intellectual property, the modernizing of justice delivery, and much more.
