This guide is intended to help those interested in Caribbean Law begin their research. The Commonwealth Caribbean consists of a number of independent, democratic states politically tied within the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). Since Caribbean Law is a broad area that covers law from multiple countries, this guide was designed with that in mind. Many of the resources cover a wide span of countries, rather than nation specific information.
Use the tabs on the left hang side of the page to navigate to different sections of this guide. The tab, "Selecting a Research Topic," contains detailed instructions on how to select a topic for a legal research paper related to Caribbean Law. The Primary Law page includes databases to help you find cases, statutes, and treaties within the Caribbean Nations. The Secondary Sources page includes books and other databases to help guide you in your research.
