The Norman Manley Law School bested seven other law faculties and schools from across the region to win the 10th Annual Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) Law Moot Competition in 2018 at the Court’s headquarters in Trinidad.

The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) will host its 11th Annual CCJ International Law Moot on March 21 and 22, 2019 at the Court’s headquarters in Trinidad and Tobago before a bench of three CCJ Judges.  The Law Moot has been extended to 2 days for this staging because of increased interest.  Last year’s competition had eight teams from law schools and faculties around the region and was won by the Norman Manley Law School from Jamaica. The panel of CCJ judges who will this year decide on which of the nine teams is the best in the competition includes the Honourable Messrs. Justice David Hayton, Jacob Wit and Winston Anderson. 

The winning team comprised: Mr. Luke Cook, Mr. Jovan Bowes, Mr. Samuel Bailey and their advisor, Ms. Tara Carnegie (2nd right).
