Representatives of the Council of Legal Educa-tion (CLE) will meet with Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Chairman Ralph Gonsalves on July 31st to discuss the council’s decision to deny law graduates from Guyana and other non-UWI campuses admission into the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad.
The meeting, which is being held at the request of CLE Chairman Jacqueline Samuels-Brown on behalf of the council will take place in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, where Gonsalves is Prime Minister. Stabroek News was informed of the coming meeting by Legal Affairs Minister Anil Nandlall, who says he will also be travelling to St. Vincent for the meeting.
During a meeting of CARICOM heads in March, the matter of the CLE’s decision was discussed, which resulted in a letter being dispatched from Gonsalves to the CLE.
