PACIFIC COMPARATIVE LAW AT MONASH
AbstractThe study of law in the South and Central Pacific region reflects historical and political realities. Legal education is dominated by university law schools situated on the perimeter, where the problems of the island states and territories of the essentially Third-World region do not attract high priority.Having regard to the size and needs of the region, what is the value of a single "Pacific-related" course offered as part of the law degree curriculum at a university on the perimeter — such as Pacific Comparative Law, taught at Monash University, Melbourne? In order to answer the question, it is necessary first to examine some of the dimensions of the law of the region.
