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.
