This is the first textbook to deal with criminal practice and procedure as it relates to the Caribbean. The text clarifies the state law in each jurisdiction, making it clear when laws are the same or similar and statutory law in the Caribbean is compared to English Law throughout. Statute law and common law are examined in the relevant jurisdictions including Trinidad, Tobago, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and Grenada among others. Although the laws of each jurisdiction have many things in common, Seetahal makes it clear when differences in laws between the jurisdictions apply. The impact of statutory changes are also analyzed alongside recent developments.

Revised throughout, this new edition addresses the recent changes in law in St Lucia and the Bahamas bringing this popular text right up-to-date. Although written for law students, as the only book which deals specifically with criminal practice and procedure in the Caribbean, it is also a useful reference tool for criminal justice professionals.
