Review quote

...a must have for everyone who works in the Parish Court in any capacity.

-George G. Soutar, CD QC, Attorney-at-law & Notary Public

... an excellent guide and compendium of the intricacies and nuances attached to the duties of Clerk of Courts, Parish Court Judges, Deputy and Assistant Clerks, defence counsel, probation officers and the Police...a detailed and thorough collation of the criminal practice in this area which has effectively connected the dots between the law, practice and the procedure in many different areas in the Parish Court.

-Paula V. Llewellyn, CD, QC, Director of Public Prosecutions - Jamaica

This is a book which has been long overdue, and upon reading it I asked myself, 'where was this book twenty-two years ago when I was entering the system as a Clerk of Court?'

-Jeremy C. Taylor, QC, Senior Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions - Jamaica
