Utech Focus: Faculty of Law for CCJ International Law Moot Court

Published: Sunday | December 13, 2009

The Caribbean Court of Justice has invited the Faculty of Law, University of Technology, to participate in its second International Law Moot Court to be held in March 2010 in Trinidad and Tobago. The moot will be related to issues derived from the application of the Treaty of Chaguaramas.

In 1973, the Treaty of Chaguaramas established the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). This Treaty has since been revised to take into account changes in the global trading environment and the establishment of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy.

Law students from The Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, Guyana, Barbados, Haiti and the Norman Manley Law School, Jamaica have also been invited to participate in the International Law Moot Court.

New degree in communication arts and technology

The university has introduced a new bachelor of arts degree programme in communication arts and technology (BA CAT) which commenced at the start of the 2009-2010 academic year. A collaborative effort between the Faculty of Education and Liberal Studies and the Creative Production and Training Centre/Media Technology Institute (CPTC/MTI), the programme offers training in traditional mass media and new technologies. The BA CAT is a project-oriented, self-directed learning course of study offered through an inter-disciplinary curriculum and emphasises specialised training to respond to the peculiar communication needs in industry, science, popular culture and sport. Students have the option of pursuing a number of courses of study electives in journalism, corporate communication, advertising, sports journalism, popular culture and fiction writing.

The university's application period for the 2010-11 academic year is now open and will close on January 28, 2010. For further information, contact the marketing unit at 927-1680-8 ext 2075 or 2077 and/or email prospectinfo@utech.edu.jm.
