Discipline of Law

The University of the South Pacific’s Discipline of Law offers undergraduate and postgraduate programs which focus on the laws and legal systems of the South Pacific region. Focus is also placed on developing a basic understanding of the laws of the region’s former imperial powers and other common law countries such as Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States and France.

The USP Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree is accredited by the Fiji Board of Education. In addition, several courses of the LLB degree are also accredited by the Law Council of Australia.

USP Law programmes are offered in face to face mode at Emalus Campus in Port-Vila, Vanuatu and at Statham Campus in Suva, Fiji and online mode for our regional and international students. USP Law students are based in our 12 USP member countries (Cook Islands, Fiji, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu) as well as the Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the United States of America.

Our USP Law Programme equips students with the knowledge and practical skills that they need to succeed in the workforce. Our USP Law alumni, who have become leaders in both their home countries and in the Pacific region, are a testament to the success of our programme.
