Commonwealth Caribbean Business Law breaks away from the traditional English approach of treating business law primarily as the law of contract and agency. It provides a broad overview of the foundation of various legal systems and goes on to examine the various areas of legal liability that may impact on business activities. These areas include tort law, criminal law, internet law and payment in business transactions. Specifically, the book targets the development of business law in several Commonwealth jurisdictions, including Canada and Australia, but with special focus on legal developments in Commonwealth Caribbean countries. The approach of the book is to present excerpts from judgments, so as to enable students to understand legal principles as espoused by the judiciary without the filtering bias of authors. This new title is essential reading for students taking the LLB and Business Degree courses in the Caribbean and other commonwealth jurisdictions.

In the last twenty five years, company law in the Commonwealth Caribbean has undergone dramatic changes, from a model influenced by English law to a new, harmonised collection of regional legislation based on the Caricom and CLI model Acts that vary substantially across Caricom member states. The variation within Caribbean company law presents an enormous challenge, both in terms of the breadth of the subject and in addressing the difference in provisions of one state’s Company Law Act as opposed to another. Using the Caricom model Act and CLI model Act as a basis for its structure, Commonwealth Caribbean Company Law examines and compares regional implementation of company law in an accessible and comprehensive manner that will be invaluable to students and practitioners in the region.
