Law

The legal system is based on English common law and Samoan legal usages. The judiciary consists of three bodies. The District Courts negotiate at the lower level. The court of appeal is the Court of Appeal, which consists of a Chief Justice and two other judges. In the last instance, the Supreme Court, chaired by the Chief Justice, decides as the highest court for criminal and civil matters. The Land and Titles Court is responsible for disputes over land ownership and in matters of local chief titles.

Education

The school system is based on the example of New Zealand. There is compulsory schooling for children from the age of 6 for the eight-year primary level. The five-year secondary level builds on this. The language of instruction in primary school is Samoan, in secondary school it is predominantly English. In the tertiary sector there are the Samoa Polytechnic, the National University of Samoa (NUS, founded in 1988) and the University of the South Pacific (USP) School of Agriculture, headquartered in Suva, Fiji.
