In this publication, the Academy shares the stories of thirty-four phenomenal women. As we delve into their stories, we not only get a glimpse of their many triumphs in the face of daunting obstacles, but we recognise common threads. These women, having undertaken training in the law, distinguished themselves in various fields, including practice at the Bar and, in some cases, the Bench. They lent their voices to the struggles of the vulnerable and the marginalised. They promoted equality, good governance under the rule of law, and a just society. They understood the importance of advocacy and representation, and they excelled in their respective fields, setting standards for all to emulate.
“The CCJ Academy for Law is clearly creating a foundation for recognising the work of individuals who make strong contributions to the development of Caribbean society and people. The Academy is making Caribbean legal history accessible, relevant and interesting, and it is upholding its objective of providing a platform for discussing the rules and roles of law. ”
