The Institute of Law and Academic Studies Limited (ILAS) is a private Tertiary Level education provider in Trinidad and Tobago where the sole programme offered is the University of London’s Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree. The chief pioneer of this institution is Dr. Gail Narinesingh, a qualified Law Lecturer, who served as Head Lecturer and Coordinator of the Law Department at another Tertiary Level institution before founding ILAS.
Today, ILAS is a well-established institution where students can access the Government Assistance for Tuition Expenses (GATE) facility as they pursue their Law degree. In its relatively short period of operation ILAS
Our students then go on to excel at their post-graduate vocational studies both in the United Kingdom and at Hugh Wooding Law School, St. Augustine, Trinidad. In recent years, our students graduated with distinction and in some cases topping their classes at Staffordshire Law School, Staffordshire University, City Law School and BPP Law School, all of the United Kingdom. In June 2012, three (3) former ILAS students topped the Hugh Wooding Law School Year 1 exams – obtaining straight A’s in all courses. And one year later, two of those students went on to obtain Merit (at least 9 out of 11 A’s) at Hugh Wooding Law School, one of whom topped the entire law school.
“I came to the University of London LLB program having just completed my first degree at an American university. Starting the Graduate Route A LLB, I was most trepidatious about transitioning into distance learning, which requires immense self-discipline and time management. I chose to come to ILAS because they provided the traditional academic setting and structure which allowed for a smooth transition into distance learning. The administrative staff was absolutely brilliant in assisting students and ensuring that all UoL deadlines and requirements were properly complied with.”

Reading should become an everyday habit, a part of your life. Read cases and familiarize yourself with how they are structured and how opinions are expressed.
Reading is what is expected of students studying at the colleges of the University of London and inevitably it is what we at ILAS expect as well.
Getting regular practice is crucial. Being able to take notes is a key learning skill for university-level study. The process of making notes helps you focus, increases your understanding of a topic and provides you with excellent material for revision.Click Here For More information
