20 November 2013 The Attorney General’s Office is pleased to announce that it will hold Law Week 2013 on Monday 25 November to Friday 29 November 2013. 

This is the 7th Law Week held by the Attorney General’s Office. The purpose of Law Week is to allow the community to learn about the law and understand how it is applied, and also to discuss views on current laws, which may lead to law reforms. 

The theme for Law Week 2013 is “Village Laws”. The intention is to discuss laws directly relating to life in villages. Such laws include laws relating to the powers and duties of town officers and district officers, order in public places, stray animals, loud noise and music, dances, land rights, cemeteries, domestic violence, access to tobacco and alcohol, and traffic offences, to name a few. 

The programmes that will be delivered in Law Week 2013 will consist of a daily radio talk back show on Radio Tonga from Monday to Friday at 2pm to 330pm, and also a nightly television discussion panel that will be broadcast on Television Tonga, with town officers from different villages in Tongatapu. 

The public is invited to listen and participate in the daily radio talk back shows, and also to watch the nightly television programmes. 

Law Week 2013 is jointly funded by the Government of the Kingdom of Tonga through the Attorney General’s Office, and the New Zealand Aid Programme through the New Zealand High Commission in Tonga.
