Caribbean Law

Postby lschhope111 » Wed Jan 09, 2013 3:08 am

Has anyone ever heard of either interning/working for a Caribbean law firm in Bermuda, Caymans, Barbados, etc. during or after law school? Seems like an interesting market with quite a diverse group of attorneys.

I'm an eastern Caribbean island right now for vacation and I can tell you a lot of these islands used to be British colonies. For example the island I'm on now drives on the left side of the road. Bermuda isn't in the Caribbean, but they definitely use a modified form of Britain common law as well, and they also drive left... I feel like it would be a lot like trying to intern/working in England law firm. I may be wrong.

It would be like working in England. Also consider that Caribbean law students have a compulsory 10 week summer attachment and so firms really may not be able to accommodate persons from outside the region.
