BACK TO PRIVATE PRACTICE: Deborah Thomas-Felix...

AFTER serving for almost two decades in public life, former Industrial Court judge Deborah Thomas-Felix has decided to return to private practice. Thomas-Felix, who is currently pursuing an executive MBA at the Arthur Lok Jack School of Business, said she would establish a legal consultancy firm at Uptown Mall on Edward Street in Port-of-Spain.

Thomas-Felix said her last working day at the Industrial Court will be September 11. “My new five-year contract (at the Court) was renewed last year, but I have decided to do other things,” she told Newsday.

The news that Thomas-Felix has resigned from the Court raised eyebrows when its president Cecil Bernard made the announcement during a special sitting on Thursday last. But Thomas-Felix assured that she had left the court on her own volition.

“I am at a crossroads in my life and it would be a challenge...I just want to do something new,” she said. Thomas-Felix, a former Deputy Chief Magistrate, said she began working at the Industrial Court in December 2003, but left in 2007 to pursue a year-long Hubert Humphrey Fulbright Scholarship at Washington School of Law.

The scholarship was awarded by the US Department of State and Fulbright, she said. On her return to Trinidad and Tobago in August, 2008, Thomas-Felix said she felt the need to do something new.

“I returned with new knowledge and competencies and I have been thinking of how best to utilise my new training,” she said. “It could not have been utilised properly at the Industrial Court, so I decided to leave public life.”
