Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court The achievement of professionalism and excellence in the timely,effective and efficient access to, and administration of a cohesive, independent and accountable system of justice for the benefit of its Member States.”

Our Court holds in high regard its role as the bastion for the promotion and protection of the fundamental rights and freedoms held by every person in our society, from the youngest child to the oldest adult. When these fundamental rights and freedoms are threatened or violated society is negatively impacted. The Court is the avenue through which redress is obtained and balance is restored in society. The development of law has a direct impact on the values in society and the strides that we make as a region. Therefore, as with anything else, we need to ensure that the Court achieves its purpose efficiently and effectively. As a regional court the ECSC has an even greater responsibility to bear; we must therefore make it our duty to preserve this Institution and all that it represents.

Truth be told, the challenges faced by the Court impact negatively on its ability to function as efficiently and effectively as it should. This co–equal branch of government, like any other, is being buffeted by the ferocious torrents of harsh economic times. The adverse effects are felt by our Court as we strive to maximize operations even in the face of such adversity.

(Excerpt from the Chief Justice’s Address, Opening of the Law Year, Tuesday,17th September 2013)
