(CNS): Head of the Cayman Islands Law School’s  Professional Practice Course, Deborah Barker Roye has updated her popular textbook, Civil Litigation in the Cayman Islands. Originally written in 2004, it explains the process of civil litigation in Cayman, referencing it to local laws, procedure and case judgments. The book was reprinted in 2007, but Barker Roye has now written a fully indexed second edition with important local legal updates.

The Cayman Islands Law School’s Academic Press publishes a number of books on local jurisprudence including and Simon Cooper’s a senior lecturer for the Professional Practice Course, is instrumental in publishing the school’s series of textbooks including his own book Conveyancing Law and Practice in the Cayman Islands, originally published  in 2004 now  second edition.

Receiving he copy of Barker Roye’s book Attorney Geenral Sam Bulgin said it was an import contribution to the local legal sector. “I am elated that the law faculty are enabling students to get a solid local grounding, thereby ensuring that demands by the Islands’ vibrant legal profession are locally met,” Bulgin added.

Clear and concise, the textbooks have also become a popular resource for local and visiting attorneys as well as the local judiciary, Director of Legal Studies Mitchell Davies said the Chief Justice wrote the foreword for two of Barker Roye’s books. The textbooks can be purchased at the Law School, located above Cayman National Bank’s downtown branch. For more information, contact the school on 945-0077 or www.lawschool.gov.ky.
