The purpose of this guide is to provide resources to those who are researching Caribbean law.  This is not an exhaustive list of resources, but will provide a good starting place.
Geographically, the term  "Caribbean" refers to those nations and dependencies located within or surrounding the Caribbean Ocean. Compounding the confusion is that the term may also refer to the Commonwealth Caribbean and likewise to CARICOM (the Caribbean Community) or to the sub-grouping of countries which form the Eastern Caribbean/Organisation of the Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). In addition, "West Indies" is sometimes used as an alternative to "Commonwealth Caribbean."  Futhermore, due to historic similarities and to political ties, the study of the Caribbean is often considered jointly with the study of Latin or Central America.
