Partnering to assist Corporate Transformation

The UWI constantly seeks to enhance its relevance to the region and as such the UWI Mona has partnered with the National Commercial Bank to produce critical corporate transformation research. This programme is the first of its kind in the Caribbean and stems from the observation that many Caribbean-based companies are in need of radical change in organisational behaviour to equip them to navigate the dynamic global and local environments. The UWI was the first port of call to organise this academic research.

The Honourable Justice Pearletta Lanns

The opening of the new second high court at the Sir Lee Llewellyn Moore Judicial Complex in Basseterre, St. Kitts, has seen the appointment of a second judge to serve the St. Kitts Circuit – Her Ladyship, the Honourable Justice Pearletta Lanns, a Nevisian. In 1985, Justice Lanns, on completion of her library degree, attended the UWI Open Campus in St. Kitts and Nevis and joined the Challenge Programme, which had offered a first year Law LLB of the degree programme.
