HARBOUR VIEW: The University of Curaçao (UoC) Dr. Moises da Costa Gomez now offers its law program to St. Maarten students on the fifth floor of the Brooks Tower Building in Harbour View. Classes started here on March 1.
UoC has offered its law program here since 2018. It is the same program as in Curaçao that has been positively assessed by the Netherlands Flemish Accreditation Organization NVAO.
The new location was sought based on feedback from students about COVID-19 measures and to improve educational facilities.
The Brooks Tower Building has more space for teaching, a library and administrative and students support. The location is more accessible for students with improved internet facilities, an important prerequisite for the law program.
UoC said it will continue efforts to accommodate students and foster homegrown lawyers in St. Maarten.
UoC plans to offer more programs in the future, starting with the Master’s Degree in tax law.
