Statement from the Cayman Islands Law Society

We are aware of the recent Private Member’s motion by Mr. Arden McLean and Mr. Winston Conolly. We strongly object to the allegations of any breaches of the laws of the Cayman Islands and we are concerned that this motion is simply a means of diverting attention from the merits of the Legal Practitioners Bill (the “Bill”).

The Bill brings the framework governing Cayman’s legal profession into the modern era and must be passed in order for the Cayman Islands to comply with current international best practice.

The Bill also lays a solid foundation of opportunity for current and future generations of Caymanians.

It has the backing of the vast majority of the members of the Cayman Islands Law Society and the Caymanian Bar Association and we encourage all members of the Legislative Assembly to support the Bill.
