Over the period of three days [June 18-20, 2018] the Honourable Attorney General, Basil Williams, S.C, M.P and members of the local Joseph Haynes Law School (JHLS) committee met with representatives of the Jamaica joint venture partners. The representatives were Professor Dennis Gayle, Executive Chancellor of the University of the Commonwealth Caribbean, UCC; Dr. David Wan, Group Finance Director, UCC; Mr. Courtney Wynter, Chairman of the Board, Law College of the Americas (LCA); and Mrs. Marcelle Donaldson, Attorney-at-Law.
