From , 6:03 am on 19 February 2018

A new conference series on Pacific law, custom and constitutionalism was launched this month in Auckland.

The first of three series looks into Samoan traditional leadership, customary land tenure and religious rights.

With land rights being a hot topic lately in Samoa, the former Head of State revealed his involvement with the Land Title Registration Act at this two day event.

Sela Jane Hopgood was at the conference.
