33rd Annual Meeting (2014) Tarawa, Kiribati

The 33rd Pacific Islands Law Officers Network (PILON) Annual Meeting will be hosted in Tarawa, Kiribati on the 11th -12th November.

Prior to this, the 5th Pacific Prosecutors Conference will be held in Nadi, Fiji on the 5th - 7th November.

Pacific Islands Law Officers' Network

PILON is a network of senior public law officers from Pacific Island countries,

including Australia and New Zealand, which focuses on common legal issues

within the Pacific region. PILON was established in 1982 and holds meetings annually.

At the 25th meeting in Kiribati in February 2007, PILON changed its name from the

Pacific Islands Law Officers’ Meeting (PILOM), reflecting members’ desire for

emphasis to be placed on the information-sharing role of the organisation.

The PILON Secretariat is the coordination mechanism for PILON and is

responsible for progressing the PILON Work Plan and assisting with

organisation of the annual meeting. The Secretariat has been based in Apia,

Samoa since early 2011.

In November 2013, Tonga hosted the 32nd PILON Annual Meeting.
