HOW TO BECOME A LAWYER IN TRINIDAD?: Antoinette Sydney

There are 2 ways to qualify to practice law in Trinidad and Tobago. I will discuss one way in this post. In a subsequent post, I will discuss the other way.

Step 1 –The Bachelor of Laws (LLB)

The Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree is a three-year program that law students may complete at the University of West Indies in Trinidad or in Barbados. This will be an introduction to many principles of different types of law such as contract law, family law. There are approximately 5 different law courses for you to complete every semester. At the end of every semester, you will have a written examination. Upon successful completion of your LLB, you will be given automatic entry into the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad.

Step 2-Legal Education Certificate (LEC)

The Legal Education Certificate (LEC) at the Hugh Wooding Law School is a two-year long program. You will have oral presentations to make which will strengthen your advocacy skills. You will also have written examinations at the end of each academic year (year one and year two). In addition to this you will have at least 3 written assignments for at least 3 courses for the academic year. During the  July/August vacation of the first academic year ,the law student must undergo a period of “attachment” (internship) for at least eight weeks with an attorney at law with no less than 10 years’ experience. There is also a Legal Clinic where students can specialise in various fields of law under the supervision of an experienced attorney at law.

Step 3-Admission to Practice

After graduation from Law School, a petition to practise law as an attorney at law in Trinidad is made to the High Court. On the day of the hearing of the petition an attorney at law without about 10 years’ experience will call your name (referred to as calling to the bar)

Total amount of years: Approximately 5 years.

Why You MUST get a Utility Bill in Your Name!

What is a utility bill?

A utility bill is a detailed invoice from a service provider for your consumption of utilities such as electricity, internet, water. Some companies send you the utility bills monthly or every 2 months, especially for us in Trinidad and Tobago for electricity.

S.U.B.S.C.R.I.B.E to my Youtube Channel! I give free Legal Advice, Free Business Advice and Free Anti-Money Laundering Training on my Youtube Channel. Email me your legal questions: sydney@asyndeygroup.com

Why are utility bills important for entrepreneurs?

As a business owner, you will be asked to present a utility bill as your proof of address in order to conduct the following transactions:

1.Open a Business Bank Account (as well as personal bank account);

2.Get a Business Loan;

3.Get a credit card;

4.Purchasing a car

5.To get a mortgage to buy land

Subscribe to my Youtube channel.

What is Proof of address?

This is verification of your residential address. Financial institutions and listed businesses in Trinidad must obtain a utility bill from all customers. This is stated in law , particularly at Regulation Proof of Address 15 (1) (b) “permanent address and proof thereof” Financial Obligations Regulations. There is a body of laws and regulations that aims to fight anti-money laundering and the countering the financing of terrorism.

What happens if utility bill is not in your name?

Authorization Letters

If the bill is not in your name, you must present a letter of authorization from the person whose name appears on the bill as well as a copy of the persons National ID card. The signature on the letter must match the signature on the person’s ID card.

Parents/Family

Usually the utility bill is in the name of a parent and you can get a letter of authorization from your parent.

Tenants

There are other cases where, you are renting, and your landlord has to provide you with the authorization letter and copy of ID.

Deceased Persons

In the event that the person whose name is on the utility bill is deceased, this bill will not be accepted by financial institutions. You will be asked to return to the Service Provider and follow their internal process to get the name changed.

Best Practice?

It would be wise to get a utility bill in your name; it can be as easy as taking out the internet in your name in the instance of persons living with their friends.
