This important new text is the product of several years of research of the family law of fifteen Commonwealth Caribbean jurisdictions. It is the first and only legal text that comprehensively covers all the main substantive areas of spousal family law, including marriage, divorce, financial support, property rights and domestic violence. The rights of the statutory spouse in the jurisdictions of Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago are examined, thus addressing, on a jurisdictional basis, an important area of spousal family that is seldom covered in English family law texts. The book also covers the number and variations of divorce regimes applicable to the region - the matrimonial offence divorce model of Guyana and Montserrat, the English five fact model of Trinidad and Tobago, Dominica, Grenada, Anguilla, and St Vincent and the Grenadines, the hybrid model of Antigua and Barbuda, Belize and St Kitts and Nevis, and the no fault model of Jamaica and Barbados. This book will prove an indispensable resource for law students and legal academics, as well as for family law practitioners across the English-speaking Caribbean. Other professionals, including sociologists and social workers, will also find the book useful and informative.

Caribbean Integration Law offers a comprehensive legal analysis of the current treaties and rules governing the two main regional organisations in the Caribbean, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). Both organisations are operating under new treaties, the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas and the Revised Treaty of Basseterre, respectively, which created the CARICOM Single Market and Economy, and the OECS Economic Union. The single market and economic union were built upon principles of free movement of goods, labour, and capital, and a common external tariff. This book reviews the foundations of Caribbean regional integration, the institutional frameworks of the two regional organisations, and fleshes out the scope and context of the legal systems created by the treaties. It also reviews the dispute settlement mechanisms under both treaties, including the increasingly active role of the Caribbean Court of Justice, which allows persons to enforce their treaty rights directly before the Court. The book offers selective comparisons to the current rules governing the European Union, and integrates crucial insights from the field of public international law, including the law of treaties and international institutional law.

"This book is the outcome of a path-breaking symposium on HIV and human rights organized by the University of the West Indies Cave Hill, Barbados, together with the Pan Caribbean Partnership against HIV and AIDS (PANCAP) and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). An impressive gathering of international agencies, the judiciary, human rights experts, lawyers, nongovernmental organizations, academics, activists, business persons, union representatives, politicians and persons living with HIV together discussed their concerns about stigma, discrimination and the denial of rights. HIV attracts a wide variety of human rights abuses. However, identifying the best means to address these can be controversial. Should the approach be through constitutions and their provisions guaranteeing human rights generally or should redress be sought through the courts, or ordinary legislation? The contributors consider these questions and illustrate clearly the social and legal issues faced by the protagonists in the HIV challenge and the viewpoints of the policy makers, who must not only encourage new, more rights-sensitive laws but also counter societal prejudices that militate against transformational initiatives. This diverse text looks at the troubling, topical issue of HIV from several angles and provides a significant contribution to the literature on the subject"--Unedited summary from book cover.

"Transitions in Caribbean Law: Law-Making, Constitutionalism and the Convergence of National and International Law traces Caribbean legal thought and its development across many areas of law. Issues of administrative, constitutional, corporate and commercial, international, and labour law are explored in the context of the analyses of the Privy Council, the transnational dimensions of law and within the purview of the intrusive role of international law in domestic law. Edited by David S. Berry and Tracy Robinson, Transitions in Caribbean Law is the first legal collection to truly critique the work of the Caribbean Court of Justice alongside that of the Privy Council. Through the examination of well known Caribbean cases, the contributors dispel the myth that Caribbean law is flawed and posit other legal reasoning that reconcile the foundation on which Caribbean Law is based with the unique needs and realities of the Caribbean.

It has long been believed that the most effective way to immobilise organised criminal activity lies in blocking the channels that allow illegally-obtained assets to enter the economic mainstream. Yet even as international law enforcement co-operation in this vital endeavour becomes ever more focused, the bewildering domain of criminal money laundering techniques remains elusive. The "gross national product" of international crime still exceeds that of many nations. A main aim of this new book is to marry what we know of laundering channels and methods on the one hand and existing legal regimes (both preventive and reactive) on the other. Although major victories on the side of law and order are not numerous so far, the author clearly demonstrates that progress is being made in certain areas and that the overall thrust of international law and cooperation in the field is growing stronger. She goes on to identify a number of linkages between criminal necessities and potential legal measures that are likely to bear fruit. It is the author's belief that the insights gained by this in-depth comparison will shed light on the paths to be followed by law enforcement agents and judicial tribunals as they pursue their goal of stemming the flow of laundered illegal money into the world's economies.

The law of trusts is a subject of growing importance in the Commonwealth Caribbean. Traditional areas, such as testamentary trusts, constructive trusts and charitable trusts, are now fully incorporated into the mainstream legal system, whilst new types of trust, such as investment trusts and pension scheme trusts, are of increasing significance. In addition, the importance of the Caribbean as a region of tax havens cannot be overestimated. This book examines the relevant Caribbean legislation and case law together with the general principles of trusts law as applied in the English courts and other Commonwealth jurisdictions. This book is primarily for students reading for the LLB degree in various institutions of higher learning in the region. It will also be of interest to practitioners of trust law.

This book depicts the various ways in which Caribbean courts seek to protect the citizen against the abuse of state power through the powerful tool of judicial review. Illustrations are drawn from both constitutional law and administrative law. Between these two subject areas, there is illustration of how the courts utilise their power of judicial review not only to control state legislative authority but also the exercise of discretion by public authorities. The basic approach of the book is to reflect the established legal principles through Caribbean cases, with critique and commentary made where appropriate. Some suggestions for reform are also discussed.

In this text, various ways in which Caribbean courts seek to protect the citizen against the abuse of state power through the powerful tool of judicial review are presented. Illustrations are drawn from both constitutional and administrative law. While constitutional legislation seems to have settled down, administrative law litigation is on the increase, fuelled in part by an enlightened populace which is conscious of its basic rights. Between these two subject areas, there is ample illustration of how the courts utilize their power of judicial review, not only to control state legislative authority, but also to control the exercise of discretion by public authorities. The basic approach of the book is to reflect the established legal principles through Caribbean cases, with critique made where appropriate and commentary where warranted. Some suggestions for reform are also discussed.
