Tortola, British Virgin Islands. Jan. 26, 2024 – O’Neal Webster is pleased to announce the appointment of attorney Jamealya Fahie to The Higher Education Licensing Board by the Cabinet of the Virgin Islands to serve a three-year term. The Higher Education Licensing Board considers and reviews all applications submitted for licensing accredited higher education providers in the Territory.
As the Virgin Islands Government works to strengthen the Territory’s economy through entrepreneurship, innovation, and investment, ensuring its higher education learning institutions operate at international standards is critical. Under established requirements, the Board will provide for licensed and accredited schools to offer programmes of study within the Virgin Islands that attract, accommodate and advance local, regional and international students.
“I am honoured by this opportunity to serve the Virgin Islands on the Higher Education Licensing Board,” says Ms Fahie. “I look forward to working with my fellow board members to ensure that quality educational opportunities are available for our community and beyond.”
The Board comprises six appointees with higher education, finance, accounting, business, commerce and law expertise.
O’Neal Webster holds a decidedly unique position among all BVI law firms, being among the first to establish exclusively in the British Virgin Islands to serve onshore and offshore corporate and finance, banking, business, real estate, and trust and estate clients. The firm is known for its handling of both transactional and adversarial matters.
Since 1989, the practice has been particularly noted by clients and peers for its talent and service, consistently exceeding expectations in both international and domestic markets.
