This is the first book of its kind in the Commonwealth Caribbean on Criminal Procedure. Furthermore it is written by someone who has over twenty years experience in the field: as a prosecutor for over a dozen years, as a magistrate, as a criminologist, a criminal justice consultant and finally as a law school lecturer. This book fills a lacuna in Commonwealth Caribbean jurisprudence in that there is currently no local or regional text on criminal practice and procedure. For too long students and practitioners have had to waste time to wade through English and other text in areas that are not even relevant in order to determine their application to these jurisdictions. The book provides a useful reference to clarify what the state of the statutory law is in the Caribbean when compared to similar areas in English law and to discuss the relevant statute and common law in specific areas. It is a text useful not only for law school students but criminal justice professionals such as lawyers and police officers as well.; The content of the book includes both the statute law and common law on criminal practice and procedure in most of the relevant jurisdictions, which include Trinidad Tobago, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and Grenada among others. Where the law is the same or similar in some jurisdictions this is emphasised in the text so as to avoid unnecessary repetition in discussion. Attempts will be made to identify specific differences in the laws of different jurisdictions despite their being many commonalities. Recent developments in these areas are also discussed and the impact of the statutory changes in some countries is assessed

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.
