Ask a JAMAICAN, a qualified one, about Jamaica laws!

Here are the listing of our statutes, that govern behaviour, principle and to some extent influence our culture as Jamaicans.


A list of Jamaican laws or statutes and links to the Full Text of the same…


An increasing number of persons with an interest in Jamaica, are probing into the ‘laws of Jamaica’. What’s not understood easily is the number of persons, not Jamaican who offer advice, perhaps because Jamaicans themselves are seemingly clueless, and lawyers sometimes twist the law to their own satisfaction, not their clients gain. Either way STILL ask a Jamaica, but one qualified about the law, or at least willing to do the research for you.

Get clued in from the International Legal Legwork team (Jamaica) at THIS LINK.

You can find a listing of Acts at the Ministry of Justice. See THIS LINK.
Here are the listing of our statutes below, that govern behaviour, principle and to some extent influence our culture as Jamaicans. Now if you need help, you can contact International Legal Wiz (Jamaica)
See Actual statutes AT THIS LINK.
