The Law Court is next to the library and adjoins the Royal Barbados Police Force Headquarters. Originally, the courts housed the jail, courts and legislature. Often quoted, Henry Coleridge penned in 1832, "His Majesty's Council, the General Assembly, the Judge, the juries, the debtors and felons, all live together in the same house." If time permits it is fascinating to actually attend a court hearing here. Reminiscent of British rule, you will see the wigs and robes worn in the courts for the last several hundred years. No photography is allowed in the courtroom.
