MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE BAR COUNCIL
BAR COUNCIL PRESIDENT
Welcome to the website for the Turks and Caicos Islands Bar Association!
It is our hope that you will find this website to be a useful resource for finding information on everything happening with the Turks and Caicos Islands Bar Association (‘TCIBA’). Since the TCIBA’s constitution under the Legal Profession Ordinance in 1997, every person admitted as an attorney in the Turks and Caicos Islands (unless admitted under the limited admissions process) is a member of the TCIBA. To this end, the TCIBA is made up talented attorneys with experience and expertise across multiple disciplines within legal practice, and who have acquired training and exposure in multiple and varied jurisdictions across the globe.
Whether you are a member of the TCIBA, aspiring attorney, or member of the general public, it is hoped that you will discover through the pages of this website a legal profession that is progressively evolving. The Association is made up of a Bar Council which is responsible for the policy, control, and management of the TCIBA. The Council is further responsible for maintaining the honour and independence of the TCIBA, promoting and encouraging proper standards of practice and conduct amongst members of the TCIBA, promoting and encouraging the development and dissemination of legal learning, education and training; and encouraging the improvement of the administration of justice and procedure.
The Association has much to be proud of with its accomplishments over the years and anticipates achieving much more in the year to follow. The TCIBA remains committed to working with our judiciary as partners in the modernizing of our legal system and legal practice. We are committed to the proper administration of justice, service to the public, and to the development of a profession in which local attorneys empowered and by which young people of the TCI are inspired to pursue a legal career.
