Tanya then obtained her Bachelor of Laws Degree with Honours from the University of the West Indies in 2013 and her Legal Education Certificate from the Hugh Wooding Law School Trinidad and Tobago in 2016. While at Law School, she gained hands on experience in practical clinics where she had the opportunity to interact with clients and the responsibility for managing clients’ files. Her background and experience are varied and includes working with other firms in Barbados, as well as with the Office of the Attorney General of Barbados, where her practice focused on corporate, commercial and real estate work.
