About the Book

The establishment of the Caribbean Court of Justice sees the countries of the Commonwealth Caribbean at an important and exciting judicial crossroads. Debate, often acrimonious, continues over the abolishment of ties to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council and, increasingly those influencing the debate are a more educated and articulate Caribbean people, insisting on proper governance of the area's public bodies. This new book analyzes judicial review, a mechanism for achieving public justice, through emerging case law in the hope that it will cast light on the jurisprudential evolution of Caribbean society in the twenty-first century.

Bringing together cases and materials on judicial review in the Caribbean for the first time, this book examines what judicial review is, before going on to discuss the grounds, obstacles and conduct within the judicial review process. It concludes by examining the future of judicial review and justice more generally in the Caribbean.

Legal professionals in the Caribbean will find it a useful and comprehensive reference tool.
