Ms. Handfield-Gardiner who previously held the position of Crown Counsel within the Attorney General’s Chambers, holds a LLB and a recently earned Master’s Degree in Law from the University of Leeds.Commenting on her appointment Mrs. Handfield-Gardiner said; “I am humbled, yet proud to be working in a country where young women are encouraged to break glass ceilings and take on roles that were once only reserved for middle- aged men. Given the great leadership of our Attorney General, I am delighted to have been appointed as the Senior Crown Counsel in the International Division of the Attorney General’s Chambers.“Having worked in the Chambers since 2010, it is my earnest desire to continue to contribute to the ever-evolving demands and obligations of the legal industry in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The law, like any living organism, must change or be updated as our communities improve. The same way lawyers are meant to continuously update themselves to meet the demands of the legal profession. It’s against this backdrop that I decided to return to the United Kingdom to read my LLM in International Law. This provided me with the opportunity to improve my knowledge and skills thus making me a greater asset to Chambers. My commitment to the Attorney General’s Chambers and the Turks and Caicos Islands Government remains steadfast.“The decision to return to school represented a considerable sacrifice of time away from work and my family as well as finances on my part. However, I remain grateful to the Deputy Governor and her team as I was able to receive two $5,000.00 grants from the Professional Development Fund towards the cost of my studies.“I wish to encourage my colleagues in the Public Sector to continue to explore funding opportunities such as the Professional Development Fund which provides financial assistance to enable you to excel academically in your desired profession. Your commitment to your education serves also as a testament to your dedication to your personal development and which puts you in a better position knowledge- wise to serve your country.”Ms. Swann who holds a Diploma with Honours in Land Economy and Valuation Surveying from the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTECH), obtained an LLB from the University of Buckingham in 2010 and in 2012 was awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice upon successful completion of the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the Manchester campus of BPP University College.During the period 2013-2016, Ms. Swann worked as a Paralegal at Minnis & Company in the Bahamas before joining the Attorney General’s Chambers in September 2016 as a temporary Crown Counsel in the place of Mrs. Handfield-Gardiner who was on study leave at the time and was called to the TCI Bar in July 2017.Mrs. Handfield-Gardiner having completed her studies in September 2017 has been successfully promoted to the role of Senior Crown Counsel through open competition. Ms. Swann through open competition has been successfully appointed to permanently replace Mrs. Shayone Handfield-Gardiner as Crown Counsel within the Chambers.Commenting on her appointment Ms. Swann said; “I am very pleased to have been appointed Crown Counsel (Commercial/Civil) with the Attorney General’s Chambers. I am confident that I will be able to make a positive contribution to the Chambers and remain grateful for the opportunity to do so.”Attorney General, Honourable Rhondalee Braithwaite-Knowles is pleased to have both ladies in her Chambers and said; “I am very pleased to welcome the appointments of Mrs. Shayone Handfield-Gardiner to the post of Senior Crown Counsel and Ms. Chassidy Swann to the post of Crown Counsel.“Both appointments are part of my efforts at succession planning within my Chambers and these appointments are a testament to the solid work ethic of each counsel and their commitment to professional development. Shayone having just completed her Master’s Degree in Law and Chassidy having recently been admitted to the TCI Bar (following her in service training in my Chambers) will be valuable assets to the Government in these new roles. Shayone joins the recently established international division and Chassidy joins the commercial division.”Deputy Governor Her Excellency Anya Williams commended both ladies on their appointments and said; “It is with great pleasure that I take the opportunity to congratulate both Shayone and Chassidy on their appointments. Shayone has been an ardent worker over the years and I commend her on her decision to upgrade her skills which assisted in her promotion to the role of Senior Crown Counsel. As she joins the International Division of the Chambers we will certainly miss her advice and guidance in routine TCIG matters, but am certain that she will do well.“Chassidy during her short time with us, fully utilized her temporary employment to prove that a permanent place in the Chambers should be made for her and we are happy to have her and will certainly ensure that she is kept very busy! Congratulations ladies on appointments well deserved!”Press Release: TCIG read more

July 15, 2014 Halfway through the conversation, the public already has a lot to say about net neutrality.The Federal Communications Commission has reportedly received, as of Monday, more than 677,000 comments from individuals, companies and trade groups on the proposed Open Internet Order. The rule, as proposed, would allow Internet “fast lanes.’’The initial round of public comment has ended but the public has until Sept. 10 to file replies to comments.Related: The Latest FCC Net Neutrality Rules Should Be OpposedThe rule was proposed following a January ruling by a federal court in a suit brought by Verizon challenging FCC’s 2010 Open Internet Order setting guidelines enforcing what is popularly called “net neutrality.’’ The debate since then has boiled down to a fundamental choice that has many delving into the morass of telecommunications law. The FCC has, since 2002, regulated Internet service providers as “information services’’ under Section 706 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. The federal court ruling that tossed out most, but not all, of the 2010 Open Internet Order reasoned the FCC lacked authority under Section 706 to enforce key parts of the order. That has prompted many people and companies to call for reclassifying ISPs as “telecommunications services’’ under Title II of the act, which would allow FCC regulation of ISPs as a “common carrier” like the landline telephone company of years past.The debate has two primary sides and little middle ground. The National Cable and Telecommunications Association, which represents broadband providers among many others, announced in a blog post that it will file comments with the FCC opposing Title II reclassification. “The Commission must reject the calls of extreme voices that wrongly suggest that the only acceptable course for the Commission to take is to turn back the clock on progress by reclassifying broadband as a Title II common carrier service,’’ stated the NCTA.Related: AT&T’s Latest Move Should Have Net Neutrality Advocates Freaking OutThe clamor for reclassification has risen to a din. Companies including Y Combinator, Etsy and Mozilla have filed comments contending growth to their current stature would have been unlikely if they’d begun under a regulatory structure like the FAA has proposed.“Only reclassifying broadband as Title II will protect an open and neutral Internet,’’ wrote Alexis Ohanian, founder of reddit and a partner in Y Combinator. He noted in his letter to the FCC that Kickstarter, Codecademy, Dwolla, General Assembly, CodeCombat, Contextly, OpenCurriculum and technology investor Union Square Ventures have all called for reclassification under Title II.Notably silent in the sliver of middle ground between the two sides is The Internet Association representing “America’s leading Internet companies’’ including Google, Facebook and Amazon. Its filing with the FCC lamented “broadband Internet access providers have the incentive to discriminate and block Internet traffic,’’ but the 25-page filing does not contain the term “Title II.’’FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said when the proposed order was released on May 15 that the commission would enact a new rule by the end of the year.Related: Loss of Net Neutrality Risks a Less Friendly Internet for Entrepreneurs 3 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
