"As a law student, I greatly appreciated the distinguished, yet cordial professors who participated in the program. They were clearly passionate about the subject matter, and were genuinely interested in each student's grasp of the material. As a West-Indian American, I loved the great diversity in class discussions. The blend of U.S and Caribbean law professors combined with American law students and law students from Caribbean nations made comparative law come alive. The cultural understanding of the country (and region) and its relation to legal processes were enriched in a unique manner which must be experienced. Engaging professors, refreshing legal perspectives, unparalleled beaches, vibrant culture, and friendly locals create an unforgettable, once in a lifetime academic endeavor."
