LEGAL TRAINING INSTITUTE: A PROGRESS REPORT
AbstractThe history of the Legal Training Institute has yet to be written. It is to be hoped that the letters and documents faithfully preserved by a succession of directors will be available for some future historian, because they provide a fascinating insight into the growth of a small training institution from early and tentative beginnings prior to independence of a small developing country having close political links with the metropolitan power which severed political control in 1975. The tensions, strains and difficulties of nurturing the growth of the Institute are evident from the documents. But anyone who reads them cannot help being conscious of the dedication and commitment of the many personalities concerned to foster the growth of an institute which could take the place of the system of articling which had traditionally been the method used to bridge the gap between academic and practical law.
