Legal Practitioner’s Law sought

The Cayman Bar Association (CBA) continues to press government to pass a modernised law to govern the profession.

The talk of a new Legal Practitioner’s Law has been talked about for at least a decade. In fact at last week’s grand court opening the CBA referred to the rather unfortunate tradition of needing to address the need for a new law.

In his speech, CBA President Abraham Thoppil said, “The failure to pass such legislation has been damaging to the jurisdiction and the interests of Caymanian lawyers.
The CBA considers that the advancement of Caymanians in the profession has been inadequate. This unsatisfactory state of affairs has been compounded by the inadequacies of enforcement of our immigration regime.”

There is a draft version out there but it has been mired in arguments as to the best way forward for the profession in the country.
