About

This program, open to all majors, offers a unique opportunity for comparative study of two of the world’s major legal systems: the common law system (in Barbados, United States Virgin Islands, and British Virgin Islands) and the civil law system (in Dutch St. Maarten and French St. Martin).  Using an array of perspectives, the study of each system will cover the basic aspects of constitutional law, criminal law, civil law, court systems, and legal education.  Some attention will also be given to the links between law and religion, politics, economics, race and other cultural aspects of the Caribbean region.  Additionally, the program will explore the links between a legal system and both regional and international law. This program has been changed to an every-other-year program and will be offered again spring semester 2015.
