Minister of Justice, Don Ken, visited USP’s Emalus campus on Friday, 20th December, 2019 to present a cheque for VT5,000,000 to Pacific Islands Legal Information Institute PacLII (PACLII).
PacLII is located within the School of Law at the Emalus campus. Professor Eric Colvin, Head of the USP School of Law, accepted the donation from the Ministry.
Mr Colvin expressed appreciation to Minister Ken for the support given to PacLII and its staff.
He said without such support, it would not be possible for PacLII to continue serving the Pacific Islands.
PacLII is run by USP as a service to the Pacific communities. It provides free public access to an internet-based library of Pacific legislation and cases: www.paclii.org.
It is financially supported by the PNG Courts, the PNG and Vanuatu Ministries of Justice and Community Services, and Munro Leys Law of Suva.
