Jamaica is a country that is governed by the Rule of Law. Our citizens are very conscious of that fact and keep our courts very busy in an effort to vindicate their rights. Our judges are very conscious of their role and responsibility and do all within their power to deliver justice to those who invoke the intervention of the courts.

The Court of Appeal came into being at the time of independence. The judges of this court exercise great care in reviewing the decisions of the lower courts and tribunals, against which complaints are made. We give reasons for all of our decisions, and invite the public at large to inform themselves of these reasons by accessing them on the website of the court. An informed public helps in the building of a strong nation. 


“Please be advised that the Court of Appeal has issued Practice Note No 1 of 2016, which relates to applications for leave to appeal and applications for extension of time within which to appeal in civil cases. This Practice Note takes immediate effect.”
