LAWASIA Conferences



Unfortunately, due to ongoing uncertainty as to when travel restrictions will be lifted, we have taken the decision to cancel the Environmental Law Conference currently scheduled for 23-24 April 2021 in Fiji. We hope to schedule a replacement conference at some time in the future, but at present we cannot be sure as to dates. Please check the LAWASIA website and social media platforms for any updates.
