We are the Pacific Islands Law Students’ Association (PILSA) and our aim is to facilitate a fun, friendly and collaborative community for Pacific Law students within Law School. As an association we provide students with fantastic social, academic, and cultural support networks for Pacific law students. We encourage all students to participate and get involved in our PART II Camp, MAI tutorials, sports days, socials, professional networking events, mentoring programme, and the Pacific Island Issues Moot. The three PILSA values we build our association upon are Faith, Education, and Culture. These values empowers us in our commitment to create a safe and inclusive environment, that enables each member to thrive in their legal studies and take pride in their Pacific heritage.
