Commonwealth Caribbean Civil Procedure
Routledge-Cavendish – 2009 – 232 pages
Series: Commonwealth Caribbean Law
This new edition of a well-established book is a timely response to the enactment during the past 3 to 5 years of new rules of civil procedure which are now in force, or are soon coming into force in the vast majority of Caribbean jurisdictions. The third edition has been substantially revised and augmented to take into account the revision of the rules and covers the new rules in detail. The book also provides coverage of the recent case-law coming out of Jamaica and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), under the new rules of civil procedure.
This book is essential reading for students of Commonwealth Caribbean law as well as anyone wishing to get to grips with the new rules of civil procedure.
