19th ATTORNEY-GENERAL’S CONFERENCE
“We are moving quickly as a modern nation-state. Our laws need to keep pace with new initiatives, changing circumstances and new technologies.”
“The complexities of the challenges we face require diverse and global perspectives to overcome,” the PM said.
“This Conference routinely puts our legal fraternity on the cutting edge of both domestic and international law. Every year, at this conference, you discuss new and existing laws in a space where you can push the envelope, think outside the box and be creative about how the law can take on new developments.”
“The session on jury or judge trials will be most interesting in this respect. The conversations that begin here shape our national dialogue in the year ahead, a dialogue that can lead to new laws and reforms, and impact the very fabric of Fijian society,” the PM added.
“As members of the legal fraternity, you can do a lot of good as sons and daughters of Fiji. You can lead our nation by example, and set high standards of professional and personal behavior,” the PM further added.
