Notice to PacLII users (19 March 2015)

PacLII is located at Port Vila, Vanuatu which was hit by Cyclone Pam (Category 5+) on Friday, 13 March 2015. The University is working to repair parts of the building and to check to see if it is safe to use. We also need to reconnect to the Internet in order to become operational. The ISP has lost several towers. We can not resume operations until all is safe and in place. It is estimated that this will take up to two weeks. This notice has been posted with the kind assistance of AustLII.

To contact PacLII, until further notice, please email

PacLII Demo Website:

PacLII has been working on an updated look for the website which is intended to give it a more modern look and feel and to accommodate the increasing amount and range of information to be offered on the site. It is also intended to make navigation of the site easier for our users. In the development of the new look site we have sought to incorporate comments and suggestions made by our users in the previous Stakeholder Surveys undertaken by PacLII. The new site is still a work-in-progress but we are making it visible now so that you can go in, take a look around, and make any comments and suggestions you might like at this time, so that we may continue to incorporate your ideas as we work on the new website. You may visit the demo website by clicking here and send us your comments and suggestions via the feed-back page or by writing to the Director at
