In Barbados, Chase and Carrington met the principals of Hugh Wooding and the Normal Manley Law Schools in Jamaica and the Dean of the Law Faculty in Barbados, Professor Anthony Burgess, the sources said.
Pro Vice-Chancellor of the Cave Hill campus, Sir Keith Hunte, who had brokered a mechanism for the entry of UG law graduates after the 1995 batch ran into admission difficulties, was also expected to have been in the meeting.
Newspapers in Brazil said he had been leading in opinion surveys since his owner, Petrucio Maia, launched the animal on the campaign trail as a protest candidate in this month's municipal elections.

The ghost of Frederico surfaced at the council's statutory meeting when Williams brought up the newspaper's reference to the animal.
A 27-year-old Guyanese man, Mark Browne, from Brampton, Ontario, was among the seven taken into custody.
This information came in the wake of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) busting a gang in Toronto last week."Their status will be as if they are properly registered until Caricom Attorneys General and Legal Affairs Ministers meet at the end of next month," one source said.

During a September 24 Cabinet meeting which discussed the UG students' impasse for more than three hours, Dr.Jagan telephoned Carrington and Bird on the matter, pressing the case for the graduates to gain admission to Hugh Wooding. Jagan also faxed Sir Alister Mc Intyre, Vice Chancellor of UWI, to further push the case for the UG students.But they ran into a brick wall in a repeat of the difficulties faced by UG students last year in getting into Hugh Wooding.This had triggered off an intensive Guyana government lobby, led by Dr. Sources close to the behind-the-scenes negotiations said this week the Guyana lobby had paid off, and the UG bunch will be able to attend classes and enjoy full-time student status at Hugh Wooding until the end of the month."This mechanism was floated in January this year and was agreed on between UG and the UWI Law Faculty, and it was to have been put in place as early as possible." Officials connected to the UG law program said they are not to be blamed for the situation. Jagan, at a press conference on September 27, reiterated Guyana will move to set up its own law school if the controversy surrounding the admission of UG law graduates to UWI centres persists.He told reporters "we will ensure that their aim to qualify as attorneys-at-law will not be frustrated as Guyana is badly in need of a greater complement of practitioners.Not everything over there is fully functional yet, and the internal links still point to this blog, and will for the indefinite future.So all the old material will be left here for archival purposes, with comments turned off.
