Fully updated and revised to fit in with the new laws and structure in the Commonwealth Caribbean law and legal systems, this new edition examines the institutions, structures and processes of the law in the Commonwealth Caribbean.

- the offshore financial legal sector

- Caribbean customary law and the rights of indigenous peoples

- the Constitutions of Commonwealth Caribbean jurisdictions and Human Rights

- the impact of the historical continuum to the region's jurisprudence including the question of reparations

- the complexities of judicial precedent for Caribbean peoples

- international law as a source of law

- alternative dispute mechanisms and the Ombudsman

Effortlessy combining discussions of traditional subjects with those on more innovative subject areas, this book is an exciting exposition of Caribbean law and legal systems for those studying comparative law.
