ACCESS TO LEGAL EDUCATION IN PAPUA NEW GUINEA

  • J.B.K. Kaburise

Abstract

Access to legal education in Papua New Guinea is currently the topic of considerable debate. The issue has been pressed into relief by the PNG Government's decision to effect a substantial reduction in funding for tertiary education, and to re-direct the resultant savings into the pre-tertiary level and other revenue-generating sectors of the economy. The decision has compelled education planners to begin to cast critical eyes at the different programmes offered at the tertiary educational level. In a circular dated 14 February, 1986 the Papua New Guinea Commission for Higher Education stated that '(t)he Medium Term Development Plan affirms the government's adoption of a manpower-planning approach to educational provision.'
