Former Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Victoria Charles-Clarke said she is interested in continuing her legal career and is currently looking at a number of options available.
The former DPP said one of the places she intends to apply to is the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).
“With my experience, knowledge and background…I’ve worked in several areas in the justice system. I am hoping to utilize it at a regional or maybe an international level,” she stated.
Charles-Clarke said her passion about reforms in the justice system is one of the main reasons why she wants to pursue a career at the CCJ, which currently serves as the appellate court for four countries.
“I am very familiar and I have an intimate knowledge of many of the issues and challenges faced in the system and I think I have a contribution to make,” she added.
The former DPP was the lead facilitator at a recently concluded judicial conference in neighbouring St. Vincent.
Charles-Clarke served as a Magistrate at District Courts in Saint Lucia from 1992-1997. She later became the Registrar of the Supreme Court and served almost three years in that position. In 2002, she was appointed DPP and remained in that position until her retirement this year.
She holds a bachelor of law degree (LL.B, LCE) from the University of the West Indies (Cave Hill Campus) and a Legal Certificate in Education from the Hugh Wooding Law School.
