Government of St. Kitts & Nevis

The Law Commission - An arm of the Ministry of Justice and Legal Affairs



How We Serve the Public

There are no specific services offered to the public at large. However, any relevant stakeholder who is interested in proposing or discussing Law Revision or Law Reform may make contact with The Commission to share ideas, suggestions or concerns regarding matters which can be the subject of revision or reform.
The Commission is in liaison with the Regional Law Revision Centre in Anguilla to produce a special website of Laws Online which will contain a complete collation of the updated Revised Laws of St. Kitts and Nevis. The Commission is also expected to make readily available (in electronic and hard copy formats) Word and PDF copies of all of the laws of St. Kitts and Nevis for access on demand by interested persons and in particular to make copies available to the Attorney-General, to the Clerks of the National Assembly and Island Assembly, to the Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court and to the Registrar of the High Court and also to several other entities involved in the justice system. The Commission also interacts with the Government Printery which plays a major role in assisting the Commission in executing its mandate.
