Esther Chukwuemeka, who was denied admission into the Nigerian University for being too young has been called to the bar at 20.
She has been tagged the youngest Nigerian lawyer to be called to Bar.
She was called to bar on Wednesday, July 28, at the age of 20, according to Barrister NG. The girl, from Okigwe, Imo State, finished her secondary school at the age of 13 and got admission into ABSU, but the school denied her admission citing that she’s underage.
Her father then sent her to India to study Law and she graduated in flying colours after which she returned to Nigeria for Law School. She wrote the Bar final exam and was among the successful students. She has now been called to bar as a solicitor and advocate of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
