Message from the President

Sir Hartman Longley, Kt
Sir Hartman Longley, Kt. President

I would like to officially welcome you to the Court of Appeal’s website. I hope that you find the website useful and easy to navigate.

The contents of the website have been specifically designed to serve as an educational resource for students. Its creation was also intended to provide legal information for counsel and their clients. Thirdly, its purpose is to serve as an archive for Bahamian appellate court decisions and jurisprudence.

It is my hope that the aforesaid purposes are fulfilled for each and every visitor to this website but it is my further hope that each of you get an opportunity to physically visit our court premises whether it be to observe our daily court sittings or whether as a student you participate in our educational program. Indeed, whatever the purpose for your visit, thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit with us.

Sir Hartman Longley
