Legal System

Jamaica’s judicial system is based on English Common Law, and comprises the Supreme Court (including the commercial court, gun court and revenue court); the Court of Appeal, the magistrates’ courts (including the traffic courts); the family courts and the courts of petty sessions. The Privy Council in the UK is the final court of appeal. However, there are indications that Jamaica could replace it with the Caribbean Court of Justice, which was established in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, in 2005.
