The Commonwealth promotes and strengthens the rule of law that underpins strong democratic and accountable governance. Contributor: Niaz A.
The Common Law system is one of the three major types of legal systems in the world. Some legal systems involve a combination of two or in a few instances all three of these types. The Common Law System originated in England and in its earliest form was based on societal customs and norms recognised and enforced by the judgments and decrees of the courts. The Common Law system became therefore the law custom, statutes and judicial decisions common to all of England.

The Commonwealth Caribbean comprises a group of countries mainly islands lying in an arc between Florida in the north and Venezuela in the south. Varying widely in terms of their size, population, ethnic composition and economic wealth, these countries are, nevertheless, linked by their shared experience of colonial rule under the British Empire and their decision, upon attaining independence, to adopt a constitutional system of government based on the so-called 'Westminster model'. Since independence these countries have, in the main, enjoyed a sustained period of relative political stability, which is in marked contrast to the experience of former British colonies in Africa and Asia. This book seeks to explore how much of this is due to their constitutional arrangements by examining the constitutional systems of these countries in their context and questioning how well the Westminster model of democracy has successfully adapted to its transplantation to the Commonwealth Caribbean.

This chapter focuses on the differing approaches of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council and the Caribbean Court of Justice towards the interpretation of the independence Constitutions of the Commonwealth Caribbean. I call the approach advocated by these scholars the holistic approach because it treats the constitution as a whole as greater than the sum of its parts. The Caribbean Court of Justice in two recent judgments on appeals from Barbados and Guyana respectively has now adopted this approach. Following qualification as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales he has held lecturing positions in the United Kingdom, France, and the Caribbean.
