The Law and Constitution for Every Jamaican (Paperback)
Well known amongst colleagues as a zealous advocate for the constitutional right to freedoms of thought and expression, David Batts extends his reach with this simplification of the Jamaican Constitution, law, and legal system for all Jamaicans to better understand it. The Law and Constitution for Every Jamaican provides simple information on how the law works. The book commences with a definition of law and the legal systems of the world. It explains the Jamaican legal system - its genesis, how it operates - and how the judicial system functions. Ideal for the Civics, Social Studies, and Law student at any level, this work covers other institutions of governance. From the Jamaica Constabulary Force to the operations of the National Land Agency, the Transport Authority and the Island Traffic Authority; the Rent Board and Firearm Licensing Authority (to name a few), readers will benefit from details and explanations as well as examples showing the law in action.
