Welcome Message

Welcome to the newly redesigned website of Legal Services of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat. CARICOM Law is intended to provide updated and accurate information to Member officials, Attorneys-at-Law, students and the general public regarding developments in Community law and jurisprudence.

This is an exciting time in the development of CARICOM jurisprudence. Our unique path to regional integration is reflected in our membership, our structure and Institutions, and now, the rapidly growing body of Community law, expressed in our legal Instruments, Community decisions and Court judgments.

This site comprises a database of all Community instruments – treaties, agreements and other legal documents – as well as national legislation submitted by our Members. Our newsletter, CARICOM Chambers Quarterly (CCQ), will be continued to be published online at this site.

In addition to the freely available information and legal resource materials, CARICOM Law will be an important working tool for the Community in the review and preparation of legal instruments, with facilities for registered users including discussion fora and access to restricted documents.

Our website is still in its testing stage, and some of the documents you are used to accessing may not be immediately available. However, feel free to email us chambers [at] caricom [dot] org for any particular requests and we will do our best to accommodate. Should you encounter any other difficulties with the site as we are in the development process, or if you have any suggestions, please contact us.

General Counsel (ag.)
