About the Conference

Registration for the 16th Annual Regional Law Conference is now open

The 16thConference has the theme As the World Turns and the Pendulum Swings, So Should The Law?” It runs from 13th to15th September and we are excited to be hosted by the Antigua and Barbuda Bar Association at the beautiful Saint James’s Club & Villas, locatedon a secluded 100-acre peninsula on the southeastern coast of Antigua.

We promise you an interesting and varied programme this year, with many interesting speakers.

The OECS Bar Association’s Regional Law Conference (previously called the “Law Fair”) is an annual event designed to bring together members from various bar associations throughout the Caribbean and beyond.  It is intended to provide an opportunity for continuing legal education to members of the legal profession, judiciary, and the public.   It enables attendees to hear from law professors, other lecturers, legal luminaries and members of the judiciary about legal development in the jurisdiction and beyond. It also provides an opportunity to network with members of the legal profession and to create strategic alliances. 

A critical component of the Regional Law Conference is the Law Books Exhibition. The exhibitors’ booths display a wide array of new publications and books on legal issues which practitioners can purchase at significantly reduced prices. 

The 1st Regional Law Fair (as it was then called), the brainchild of the late Past President Nicole Sylvester, was held in September 2004 and was hosted by the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Bar Association. As a result of the success of that event, the OECS Bar Association undertook to lend its support by hosting all future Regional Law Conferences. Since then, 8 out of 9 constituent bars have hosted the Regional Law Conference. All were resounding successes.

This our 16thyear, the Conference is on the island of Antigua. Located in the heart of the Caribbean,  this breathtakingly beautiful island is one of the Caribbean islands that comprise the nation of Antigua and Barbuda and will form the perfect backdrop for intellectual stimulation, discussions and social events that all promise to make this another great Regional Law Conference!
