Pacific Law and Culture Conference 2018
2-4 JULY 2018, UNIVERSITY OF CANTERBURY, CHRISTCHURCH
The University of Canterbury School of Law is hosting the 2018 Pacific Law and Culture Conference. The Conference theme “Voices of the Pacific in a Globalised World,” is intended to increase understanding of Pacific legal issues and to strengthen relationships between Pacific legal scholars and students in New Zealand and beyond. The Conference provides a platform for emerging and established Pacific legal scholars to consider the critical question of how to make law operate effectively whilst remaining culturally appropriate to the Pacific context and responsive to the needs of Pacific peoples.
NZ Law Foundation has awarded up to $19,331 towards bringing three keynote speakers and a number of international students; and travel for domestic students; plus a student prize
