It will also be useful for students at the professional law schools who are required to take courses in the law of landlord and tenant and for paralegals taking land law courses.

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.

Sports Law has quickly developed into an accepted area of academic study and practice in the legal profession globally. In Europe and North America, Sports Law has been very much a part of the legal landscape for about four decades, while in more recent times, it has blossomed in other geographic regions, including the Commonwealth Caribbean. This book recognizes the rapid evolution of Sports Law and seeks to embrace its relevance to the region. This book offers guidance, instruction and legal perspectives to students, athletes, those responsible for the administration of sport, the adjudication of sports-related disputes and the representation of athletes in the Caribbean. It addresses numerous important themes from a doctrinal, socio-legal and comparative perspective, including sports governance, sports contracts, intellectual property rights and doping in sport, among other thought-provoking issues which touch and concern sport in the Commonwealth Caribbean. As part of the well-established Routledge Commonwealth Caribbean Law Series, this book adds to the Caribbean-centric jurisprudence that has been a welcome development across the region.

Commonwealth Caribbean Business Law breaks away from the traditional English approach of treating business law primarily as the law of contract and agency. The book takes a panoramic view of the foundation of various legal systems with a subsequent examination of different areas of legal liability that may affect business activities. These areas include contract law, agency, tort law, criminal law, and internet law as significant challenges confronting the business sector. The book primarily targets the development of business law in several Caribbean Commonwealth jurisdictions but also, where appropriate, embraces the jurisprudence of other Commonwealth nations such as the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. With respect to internet law, the proliferation of judicial pronouncements emerging from the United States provided the platform for the only non-Commonwealth treatment of a topic. The approach of the book is to use excerpts from judgments so as to allow students, particularly the non-legal student, to understand legal principles as espoused by the judiciary without the filtering bias of authors.

“Contract Law: A Commonwealth Caribbean Case Book” focusses on contract law, as articulated by the jurists of the Commonwealth Caribbean region. Case law from across the region has been combed to source the cases identified in this text. The jurisdictions from which the cases have emanated span the full breadth of the Commonwealth Caribbean region. The quality of the judgments referenced and the clarity of expression of the legal principles by our regional jurists should greatly assist the young law student in his journey through this interesting area of law. The Caribbean jurisprudence in the area of contract law operates within statutory and common law boundaries. The absence of statutory intervention in some situations and the presence of legislation in others, makes this area of law unique in its operation. While it is important for students to be able to conduct research, there is a need for Commonwealth Caribbean resource material. This book seeks to achieve this objective. The wide body of contractual principles have been categorised into identifiable elements of contract law so as to guide a student through this vast area of law. I hope to underscore the essential nature of contract law to not only the law student’s arsenal of legal expertise, but also to his eventual practice of law. It is hoped that this book can assist in developing a genuine interest and understanding of contract law.
