Bond University Faculty of Law has always had very strong connections with Fiji. Prior to the establishment of a law school at the University of the South Pacific, many Fijians attended Bond under a special scholarship arrangement with the Fijian Affairs Board. As a result, Bond graduates are prominent in the Fijian legal community and there is a strong alumni group in Suva.
The Law Faculty is keen to maintain its connections with Fiji and other Pacific Island nations. Special bursaries are therefore awarded to enable Pacific Island students to assist them attend the University.
