Guyanese is new CCJ Registrar

(Trinidad Express) The Port of Spain-based Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) has a new registrar and marshal.
Guyanese national Jacqueline Graham, who took up the post from July 1, is an attorney with an MBA in Finance (University of Manchester, UK), an undergraduate degree in Management Studies (University of Guyana) and is a graduate of the Hugh Wooding Law School at St Augustine.
Before her appointment at the CCJ, Graham was the legal assistant to the Chancellor of the Judiciary of Guyana and the registrar of that country’s Court of Appeal.
As registrar of the CCJ, Graham is the chief administrator of the operations of the Court and also has responsibility for managing the financial portfolio of the CCJ.
The court has a US$100 million revenue base provided by the member states of Caricom, which is managed by a trust fund.
In judicial matters, the registrar is responsible for the receipt, issuance and management of court documents and processes, the taxation of costs and for assisting the president and judges in their official functions.
In addition to her legal training and work experience, Graham has worked in the banking and finance sector, as a prosecutor in the High and Magistrates’ Courts of Guyana, and was employed by the private law firm, Interlaw Consultants.
She was also an assistant lecturer at the University of Guyana in the Faculty of Social Sciences.
“With her distinguished academic career and practical work experience, Ms Graham brings significant administrative capacity and a sound legal education to her job responsibilities at the CCJ,” said president of the CCJ, Sir Dennis Byron.
