The applicable law in the Caribbean Single Market
The Honourable Mr Justice Rolston F. Nelson (Caribbean Court of Justice and former IALS Inns of Court Fellow) examines the status and work of regional courts which exist as offshoots of regional economic communities, with particular reference to CARICOM. He considers the conundrum of the regional court that while it is a supranational body created by international law agreements and applying international law, it purports to prescribe a uniform local law for the limited geographic area of its jurisdiction based on considerations legal and economic peculiar to that geographic area.
