I believe that excelling in the complex world of modern law practice entails building

motivated my choice of undergraduate courses particularly, Oil and Gas Law,

Commercial Law, Banking and Insurance Law, Criminology, Humanitarian Law,

Family Law, Industrial/Labour Law, Company and Partnership Law, amongst others.

My recognition of the need for versatility at this formative level also explains my

consistent efforts to develop myself in areas of litigation and client counseling.

I have also obtained useful training and work experience in leading Law Firms in

Nigeria and I have been entrusted with multiple leadership and administrative

responsibilities during my undergraduate study programme, giving me varied skills and

the ability to interact and work with many people of diverse background and a

disposition to explore solutions to both hypothetical and live problems.

being a part of your team will be pivotal in harnessing my potentials while affording me

the fertile ground to contribute very propitiously to your august Firm. As exhibited in

my Curriculum Vitae (CV), the core values of hard work, innovative thinking, prudent

management, industry and self-sacrifice are key ingredients in my personal
