Fiji Law Society back after five years

Update: 4:00PM BACK after an absence of five years, the Fiji Law Societys focus is a much changed one.

Peter Knight was elected FLS president while Laurel Varasi was elected vice-president, and senior lawyers Richard Naidu, Wylie Clarke, Ramesh Prakash, Ritesh Naidu, Nancy Chu and Folau Puamau as council members in September.

Prior to the establishment of the Legal Practitioners Unit and the Independent Legal Services Commission, the Society registered lawyers, issued practicing certificates and looked into complaints against lawyers.
