FIJI YOUNG LAWYERS ASSOCIATION
The President of the Fiji Young Lawyers Association, Aiyaz Sayed - Khaiyum has been actively organising events for his members. Recently, the FYLA had a presentation on International & Humanitarian Law & its Applicability in the South Pacific at the JJ's Conference. They also hosted a cocktail for the Chief Justice of New Zealand Dame Sian Elias. The night was a success and it proved to be a golden opportunity for many young lawyers to mingle with the Madame Chief Justice.
The FYLS also has a programme called the "Secondary Schools Legal Educations". The young lawyers give talks to school on legal issue or careers in the law. They have also give free legal advice to certain NGO organisations such as Fiji Women Rights Movement.
