The Pacific Academic Support Strategies (PASS) Programme
The Pacific Academic Support Strategies (PASS) programme was developed to support Part I, II and III Law students. The programme consists of tutorials and workshops which are run regularly throughout the academic year. These focus on developing students’ legal academic writing skills, and enhancing academic performance.
Pacific Honours Club (PHC)
The Pacific Honours Club generally engages Part II students and is designed to foster and cultivate the standard of excellence required to gain entry into the LLB (Hons) degree.
For current students contemplating what to do with their Law Degrees, a number of PASS Professional Development events are organised, often in conjunction with the Pacific Island Law Students Association (PILSA) to assist students with their preparation for entry into the profession.
You can contact the Pacific Academic Counsellor or the Faculty Student Adviser for assistance.
