The Honourable Sir Manuel Sosa, President of the Court of Appeal of Belize and former Chief Justice of Belize, visited Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago 23-26 February 2015, as a guest of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).

The visit was as a result of an invitation extended by the President of the CCJ, the Right Honourable Sir Dennis Byron, in order to facilitate the efforts by the Belizean Court of Appeal to improve the administration of justice.

Earlier in the week, at the CCJ, President Sosa was involved in various activities including discussions with the CCJ President and Judges and a courtesy call on the Chief Justice of Trinidad and Tobago, the Honourable Mr. Justice Ivor Archie.

As a highlight of the visit, with the assistance of the Faculty of Law of the University of the West Indies St Augustine Campus, Sir Manuel Sosa made a presentation to law students on the topic: On Board with the CCJ: An Overview of the Belizean Experience thus far.

The visit of Sir Manuel Sosa also included a visit to the Hugh Wooding Law School where he met with the Principal, Ms. Miriam Samaru, and received a guided tour of the facilities. (CCJ Press Release)
