The Pacific Islands Law Students’ Association provides a fantastic social, academic and cultural support network 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, Culture.

The PILSA room is open to all law students and is a great place to come and socialise. There is also a shared kitchen located on level 4 next to the study space. Building 810, Level 4 room 403.
