Professor Paterson joined USP in January 1979, coming from New Zealand where he had taught law at the Victoria University of Wellington and the University of Otago, and then become legal counsel to the New Zealand Ombudsmen. He was appointed as Professor of Public Administration within the School of Social and Economic Development, teaching law and legal aspects of administration. Two years later he was also appointed as Head of the School, and about two years later again, appointed Deputy Vice Chancellor, whilst retaining his teaching and administrative responsibilities within the Department of Public Administration. In 1985, as his term as head of the Department of Public Administration, and also as Deputy Vice Chancellor, came to an end, he was appointed as Professor of Law and  Director of the Pacific Law Unit, which was established in Vanuatu to lay the groundwork for a separate program in law. The program in law was at first established at sub-degree level and taught mainly by extension to cater for the needs of people throughout the USP region whose occupations required some knowledge of law, such as lands officers, customs officers, police officers etc, and Professor Paterson wrote many of the courses for this program. In the early 1990’s, the University was requested to provide a full degree program in law, so the Pacific Law Unit was dissolved, and replaced by a Department, later a School, of Law, and Professor Paterson continued teaching in that Department and School until his retirement in 1997, when he was recognised by the university by being awarded the appointment as emeritus professor. Since that date, Professor Paterson has continued to be actively involved in teaching, teaching a full load of course each year, and he is also actively involved in undertaking consultancies in law related topics in countries of the South Pacific.
