ABOUT US

Upon moving to the Caribbean, having lived in the UK and Bahrain, the founders of DSG Caribbean noticed a significant gap in available legal resources concerning the Caribbean. Whilst the founders were fortunate enough to work at an institution with a Law Library, much of the access to resources depended solely on the link with the library. This link also placed heavy reliance on paper-based formats, which needed to be sourced and scanned. 

 

When starting to research the region, the founders discovered that limited accurate information was available online concerning the laws of the Caribbean. Many states rely on paper-based formats to disseminate and provide information, and use this format to inform concerned parties of amendments to the laws. This leaves those unrelated to the region or an institution within it in a very difficult position with regards accessing information. Where legislation and information was available online, it would often be out-of-date or incorrect, or would rely on the researcher searching numerous NGO and Government websites.

 

Further, the Caribbean is a vastly under-researched region, and DSG Caribbean believe that this is due in part to the lack of available resources to interested persons. This lack of available research, along with difficulties accessing information, add to the lack of resources from which persons can pool information.

It is from this experience and exposure that the decision was made to both consolidate information and provide legal research services to assist those who are interested in the Caribbean. The region will benefit greatly from increased legal research, which will help to shape and mould the future of the Caribbean.
