During the opening of the new Law Term 2019/2020, Dean of the Law Faculty at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Professor Rose-Marie Belle Antoine said that, in her opinion, lawyer fees in the country “are too high”.

Antoine also revealed that the lawyer fees in T&T are some of the highest in the Caribbean region.
However the Law Association of Trinidad and Tobago responded to Professor Belle Antoine statements via Twitter posts – “…Lawyer fees are fixed by the law…”
