Technical Assistance

At the 29th PILON Meeting the Secretariat was tasked to make available a document to PILON members, outlining technical legal assistance programs and initiatives available to PILON member countries and contact details of technical legal assistance providers.
The Secretariat has produced a database of technical legal assistance - available here: PDF
 The database is divided into technical assistance in specific sectors or areas of law.  Within these sectors, where possible, the type of assistance available is categorised as either:  Legislative Assistance, Workshops/Training, or Exchange or Mentoring opportunities.
 Organisations offering technical legal assistance are encouraged to contact the PILON Secretariat to discuss inclusion of the assistance available in the PILON database.
 [Database updated October 2013]
Country-specific Projects
A list of specific projects implemented in PILON member countries has also been compiled, as an additional 'arm' to the technical legal assistance database - available here: PDF

The list records projects currently being implemented as well as those recently completed.  Projects are categorised as either:  Legislative Assistance, Workshops /Training, or Exchange or Mentoring opportunities.

Model Legislation and Legislative Resources
The PILON Secretariat has additionally compiled a list of model legislation and legislative resources which are available and may be of assistance to members, available here: PDF

[List updated 31 March 2015]

The list is divided into two categories – model legislation or legislative resources:
(a) developed specifically for the Pacific; or
(b) developed as a general resource.
Details are provided in relation to the Act/resource, where available.  A list of model legislation which is under preparation is also included.  The PILON Secretariat has a copy of the majority of the items contained in the list.  Otherwise, copies may be located from the relevant organisation’s website.
Please advise the PILON Secretariat if there are additional resources which may be included in this list.
