The Fiji National University has launched a new Bachelor of Laws (LLB) program.

The new program will now come under the College of Business, Hospitality and Tourism studies.

FNU's LLB degree is offered against the backdrop of the internationally recognised University of London (UOL) which was founded in 1836.

It is a federal institution and has 18 colleges each having almost autonomous powers.

FNU will also provide lectures for the University of London's Bachelor of Law program.

Students who graduate with the LLB program can do either their graduate diploma in legal studies from the University of Fiji's law school either at its Samabula or Saweni campus.

Faculty dean Dr Mahendra Reddy said they would run the new program from the Nasinu campus.

"If students want to graduate from the London Degree they will have to enrol through us where they will take classes with us," Dr Reddy said.

"In collaboration with the University of London, we have come up with this LLB program and working with such recognised institutions will boost the products."
