LexisNexis helps improve Fijian administration of justice

LexisNexis helps improve Fijian administration of justice

LexisNexis has announced it has finalised an 18-month project with the government of the Republic of Fiji to help improve administration of justice.

LexisNexis has announced it has wrapped up its project with the government to consolidate the Laws of Fiji for the first time since 1985.

The revision of the Laws of Fiji was launched on 9 December at the 18th Attorney-General’s conference in Natadola, Fiji, by Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum in front of more than 300 members of the legal community, including judges, members of the private Bar, academics, government lawyers and officials.

“The consolidation of the laws and their availability to all Fijians is a significant step in the promotion of the rule of law in Fiji,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

“It will also facilitate the ease of doing business and provide clarity for commerce, trade and investment – both domestic and foreign – which in turn will further boost investor confidence and economic growth.”

LexisNexis Australia project leader Myfanwy Wallwork said the completion of the project will make law easier to access, creating a sustainable improvement to communities in the Asia-Pacific region.

“For the first time in 31 years, the complete set of consolidated laws are now available, resulting in a nation empowered by knowledge of the law,” Ms Wallwork said.

“This journey has inspired LexisNexis employees to think innovatively and reminded all of us yet again that our work matters, and that we contribute to society in a significant way.

“It has not only created goodwill throughout the region but it clearly also makes good business sense, as we see how vital the rule of law is to social and economic development.”
