My Route to Ellis Jones

I undertook my undergraduate degree in law at the University of Essex, graduating with a Second Class Upper Honours in 2018. Following the completion of my undergraduate degree, I went on to undertake the Nigerian Bar Course, qualifying as a Barrister and Solicitor of Nigeria in 2019. Upon my return from Nigeria, I completed the LLM LPC at BBP Law School, Holborn.

Prior to starting my Training Contract, I gained experience as a fee-earning Paralegal in the Private Client and Dispute Resolution teams at law firms in London and Derby.

Currently, I am undertaking the Notarial Practice Course at University College London with the aim of becoming a Notary Public of England & Wales.
