The Pacific Law Journal Index is a browsable database of Pacific Law articles.

The second phase of the project was to update the index by using Wilsons Index to Legal Periodicals Online and the University of Hawaii Pacific Journal Index .
The following countries are covered in the index.
Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Micronesia (including Federated States of Micronesia and the Marshall Islands), Nauru, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Pitcairn Island, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuatu.
