Professor Ekeroma also commented that he as VC and the NUS holds the former CJ in the most highest esteem given his services as a former practicing lawyer, a former Attorney General and the many years of his services as Chief Justice and President of the Land and Titles that students of the Customary Law Adjudication program will without a doubt benefit from his knowledge and experience.

In his response to the welcoming speeches, the former CJ expressed his joy and excitement to lecture at NUS since his retirement as means of giving back to the country by way of teaching and being involved in the Customary Law Adjudication program.

The former CJ is now a part time lecturer at NUS teaching Law and Customary Law, including the functions of the Courts, its values, its characteristics and procedures for this 1st Semester. Patu will be teaching Professional Ethics in the 2nd Semester.

The Customary Law Adjudication program now offered by NUS was an initiative from the government through the Minister of Justice Hon. Faaolesa Katopau Ainuu and MJCA in 2018 with the intention that some students of this program graduate with a Certificate of Customary Adjudication may in the future be selected to become judges of the Land and Titles Court, whereby legal knowledge of law and customary law is highly required and demanded.
