New lawyer keen to help A young lawyer admitted to the bar yesterday says her goal is to help the people of Samoa. Ane Tuasivi Iati Imo, 24, of Tula’ele, was accepted into the bar by Chief Justice Patu Tiava’asue Falefatu Sapolu, in the Supreme Court.

Attorney General, Aumua Ming Leung Wai and Mareva Betham-Annandale, of the Samoa Law Society, witnessed her being accepted. Ms Imo is the proud daughter of Reverend Nukulaelae Iati Imo and Tuasivi.

She graduated from

the University of the South Pacific (USP) with a law degree after having spent six months for work experience in Fiji.
Ms Imo says without the goodness of God, it wouldn’t have been possible to achieve her dream.

“My goal is to strive for the best and make use of my chosen field of work to help the people of Samoa.” Her parents are naturally pleased. “I thank God for helping my daughter,” says her proud mother.

“It’s not easy when your children go away to learn but I’m pleased that she’s achieved what she wanted. This is a very happy moment for our family.” Rev. Imo says her daughter is a hard working young woman and he commended her perseverance.


“This (a lawyer) is what I wanted her to become,” Rev Imo says. “I just hope my daughter’s career will assist the people of Samoa who need her service.”
Ms Imo took the oath in front of Chief Justice Patu. This was witnessed by Attorney General Aumua and Mrs Betham-Annandale. Ms Imo is the third of six children.
