New Diploma in Prosecutions Course

The School of Law in partnership with the Fiji Director of Public Prosecutions has introduced a new course to provide training for prosecutors who do not have a degree in law.

The new Diploma in Prosecutions course has commenced with an enrollment of just under 40 students. The course is designed to provide skills, knowledge and training to prosecutors who do not have a degree in law. Students take a number of courses from the existing Bachelor of Laws degree together with specialist courses that focus on technical and forensic evidence, advocacy skills and prosecutorial practice and serious financial crimes. It is hoped that in the coming years the course might be offered to other countries in the USP region. There is also the possibility of developing further courses at the post graduate level for prosecutors. The Law School values the support of the Fiji DPP Office in the offering of the new Diploma course.
