Jamaican Laws

There is no excuse for ignorance of the law- so they say.

But also, there are 'oh so' many sources these days that provide accurate information on the laws of Jamaica so we really ought to know them - don't we? Never mind, I know that is why you are her :-)

Thanks to the Ministry of Justice, below is a listing of them.

To get more information on each, simply, enter a word (or part of a word) from the name of an Act or Law in the Google Search box below, press search, then scroll down for the results!

You can search for multiple words at the same time. Of course you recognize that only Acts or Laws that have all the search terms will be returned.

Try it!
