Notice to PacLII Users 8th April 2015

Thank you for your patience with us as we cope with the aftermath of Cyclone Pam. We are pleased to report that we are steadily progressing to normal operational standards. The address for sending materials to documents at did not function during the shutdown between 11 March and 7 April and so if you sent any documents for publication during that time we would appreciate it if you would resend them. Email is also working again and we have internet connectivity. A malfunctioning server has been fixed and this means that we should be able to shortly resume uploading information. There are still some technical issues to be overcome which may interrupt services from time to time, but we will endeavour to keep you fully advised.

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 hamilton_l at
