TCILII is a Judiciary-led initiative, which champions the provision of access to quality justice in Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI). The initiative is to ensure that legal practitioners and the public alike, have free access to legal material necessary to advance and inform the protection of their legal rights.
The initiative is a collaborative work between the TCILII Committee, with a membership drawn from members of the Public and Private Bar, with Ms. Justice Tanya Lobban Jackson as its Chairperson, and African Legal Information Institute (AfricanLII), with Ms. Badeva-Bright, Project Director of AfricanLII, providing technical support. The following persons constitute the members of the steering committee:

TCILII has provided a mechanism by which electronic publication of judgments and other sources of law can be accessed in one location. It provides subscription-free access to the comprehensive set of local TCI judgments, as well as links to primary legal material including judicial writings and updated legislation.
Free access to legal information is a primary tenet of any sound justice system. We seek to serve the community in the TCI and beyond.
The search engine is user friendly and searches can be filtered by Subject Matter, Judgment Date, Court or Judge.
The software and approaches that are used on TCILII have been provided by the African Legal Information Institute (AfricanLII) which is a capacity-building programme of the Democratic Governance and Rights Unit (DGRU), Faculty of Law, University of Cape Town, South Africa.
