The Law Commission

About the Law Commission of St. Kitts & Nevis

The Law Commission first opened its doors on Port Zante in 2013; the Commission was staffed with just two persons, namely, Mr. Israel S. Mukasa, who previously served as Chief Parliamentary Counsel and principal draftsperson to the State for well over 15 years.

Mr. Mukasa served as Law Commissioner, the Law Reform and Law Revision Commissioner, and Mrs. Geeta Sinanan in the capacity of the Personal Assistant to the Law Commissioner.  At its offices in Port Zante, the groundwork was laid, as laws, statutes, gazettes, and subsidiary legislations were collated and organized in manuscripts in preparation for the third supplemental revision of the 2002 Revised Edition of the Laws.  

In March 2014, The Law Commission Offices began operations at the top floor of the Electoral Building on Central Street, Basseterre.
