University says this is first of its kind in Fiji, will take three years to complete.

The Fiji National University (FNU) has embarked on in­troducing a new Bachelor of Commerce, Law Major and another major pro­gramme for 2018.

The programme under the College of Business Hospitality and Tourism is designed to cater for the needs of those in the cor­porate sector who desire to have a better under­standing of the laws that govern them.

FNU Head of Law Ana Rokomokoti said busi­ness students, who study the interaction of law and business, can anticipate the legal needs of their companies and businesses and comprehend how laws and regulations impact businesses in both posi­tive and negative ways.

“The programme is of­fered at the Nasinu cam­pus and hopes to attract a good number of work­ing and non-working stu­dents,” Ms Rokomokoti said.

“The programme is also for those, who do not want to practice law but merely want to have an understanding of the law from their preferred disci­pline.”

This double major pro­gramme is the first of its kind in Fiji and it will take three years to com­plete.

“There are also other combinations such as economics and manage­ment that can be studied with law and we believe that this is a good pro­gramme,” she said.

“The degree programme aims to place a graduate at a significant advantage. Because the graduate who has learnt certain areas of law obtains a sound and deeper understanding and appreciation of the le­galities of powers, respon­sibilities and obligations that come with operating in the business world.

“In this programme, FNU also tries to develop in its students, what we at FNU label ‘the soft skills’ which are, among other things, a culture of hard work, perseverance and determination.”
