Welcome From The Chief Justice

Welcome to the website of the Supreme Court of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas. The purpose of this website is to provide visitors and stakeholders with information about the Courts, to enable you to access our services and to obtain necessary and relevant information on the procedures and daily activities of the Judiciary. Relevant information includes, but is not limited to: Important notices to our stakeholders concerning our operations and activities; the assignment of judicial officers; the daily schedule of Supreme Court Judges and Registrars; the publication of judgments which have been delivered; the physical and email addresses of judicial officers and staff; updates on new rules, practice directions and policy changes within the judicial system; and, direct links to our e-services.

As an independent co-equal branch of the government, the judiciary plays an integral role in delivering on the constitutional mandate of upholding the rule of law. The vision of the office of the judiciary is to provide a framework to minimize the time between the initiation and disposition of criminal complaints and civil disputes and to provide the public with ethical, courteous, efficient and professional service in the process.

We hope that you will find this site easy to navigate around and the information useful. We look forward to any comments you may have as to the usefulness of the information provided or suggestions for improving the site.
