LLM in ICGFR 2012-2013
The financial crisis of 2008 and the attendant global recession increased my quest for in-depth knowledge and expertise about the regulation of financial and other socio-economic activities. Reputed for excellent academic structure and capability to impact knowledge across many disciplines to students from various cultural and professional backgrounds, the University of Warwick readily came to my mind. Warwick Law School is especially renowned for its very experienced members of academic staff who have consistently excelled in their chosen fields.
The tutor-student relationship at Warwick is fantastic! Modules are convened in a way that existing theories and practices are questioned; I particularly enjoyed discussing issues on a one-on-one basis with my tutors. I had the opportunity to make friends and rub minds with colleagues from different backgrounds. We had various mini-parties and barbecues too. The Student Career & Skills programme also helped me develop skills needed to thrive outside school.
Where are they now?
I work now with a leading law firm in Nigeria where I deploy my skills and know-how especially to the securities, compliance and financial regulation practice areas of the firm. I am also presently working with senior officials of the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Ministry of Finance on issues pertaining to bond market and fiscal responsibility in Nigeria.
