About Barbados:

Barbados is a sovereign island country located in the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean. It is known around the world for having a strong educational system and a literacy rate near 100 percent, one of the top in the world. It is one of the leading tourist stops in the Caribbean and is one of the region’s most developed islands, so it is no wonder that this is the island of choice for those looking to pursue legal training who want to enjoy the island lifestyle.

The legal system in Barbados follows the British common law legal system. It has a Supreme Court of Judicature as its highest court, and under the Supreme Courts sit magistrate courts. The courts ensure due process is followed in criminal proceedings and help enforce civil rights for the people of Barbados.
