Anil Nandall

The Attorney General’s Chambers has started preparations for work related to the petroleum sector with a number of training programmes and plans for the establishment of a unit dedicated to oil and gas legal work.

Minister of Legal Affairs and Attorney General Anil Nandlall SC says that he hopes that other ministries follow suit with respective specialised training as this country is expected to expand developmentally and will need specialists in all respective fields.

“The staff of the Legal Affairs Ministry and Attorney General’s Chambers are receiving specialized education and training and that will go on as an ongoing exercise in the area of the petroleum sector and various others disciplines.  The ultimate objective is to build a reservoir of expertise from which specialized units can be established to focus in specific areas of the law, including the oil and gas sector,” Nandlall told the Sunday Stabroek in an interview.
