The crest of the Hugh Wooding Law School in St Augustine features two supporters, one male and one female, which is said to represent "the foundation of West Indian family life and depict the idea of the law being made by and for the people".
This ratio of one male and one female featured on the law school's crest was, however, not present during its graduation ceremony held on Saturday night at the Sport and Physical Education Centre (SPEC) of the University of the West Indies' St Augustine campus.
For every one male graduate who crossed the stage on Saturday night there were as many as three females doing likewise.
In all 47 males crossed the stage to collect their Legal Education Certificate (LEC) from the law school.
A total of 185 graduates were listed.
The females also dominated the awards and prizes presented to the graduates.
Crystal Braveboy-Chetram from Grenada copped the coveted Certificate of Merit which is awarded to a student who obtains 'A' grades in at least nine of the 11 courses.
Braveboy-Chetram also received three other prizes including the Most Outstanding Student Over Two Years.
Arya Redhead also from Grenada was not to be outdone her compatriot Braveboy-Chetram.
Apart from being named on the Principal's Roll of Honour for attaining 'A' grades in at least six of the 11 courses, Redhead received six other prizes including Most Outstanding Year Two Student.
Redhead also delivered a speech on behalf of the graduates.
The four other students listed on the Principal's Roll of Honour were also female.
They were Crystal Paul from Trinidad and Tobago, Ashley Henry from Guyana, Kimberley Mayers from Barbados and Algitha Richelieu from St Lucia.
Senior Counsel Reginald Armour, the chairman of the Council of Legal Education, presented the graduates with their certificates.
Principal of the Hugh Wooding Law School Miriam Samaru said the students during the Legal Aid Clinic were able to assist more than 1,000 people who were unable to access legal services.
"They may have groaned and complained about the amount of work that they were required to do in the Legal Aid Clinic, however, together with the 10 attorneys at the clinic they provided assistance to over 1,000 clients who would not have been able to otherwise access legal services," Samaru said.
Leanna Ramkhalawan from Trinidad and Tobago received the Law Association of Trinidad and Tobago (LATT) prize for showing the most dedication to the Legal Aid Clinic.
Samaru said the Legal Aid Clinic as well as the other challenges the students faced during their studies were the "building blocks for the development of the blueprint of their careers".
Justice Winston Anderson, a judge of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), who delivered the feature address called on the graduates to never forget the Code of Ethics of the profession.
Anderson said lawyers in the region are often painted with a "negative brush" of being unscrupulous, lazy and unprofessional.
He said while there are "undoubtedly bad apples in the legal profession" the widespread criticism is unwarranted.
He called on the young lawyers to put their energy into making a difference and always remember their Code of Ethics.
"Study the code, even though you already passed the ethics exam, keep a copy close to hand, perhaps on your bedside table, make it your creed, give it your word of honour, live by it, this one simple step can ensure your success in the profession," Anderson said.
Chief Justice Ivor Archie, as well as High Court Judges Frank Seepersad and Kevin Ramcharan were also present at the ceremony.
