At the age of 20, a lady was called before the bar after being denied entrance to a Nigerian university because she was too young.
Esther Chukwuemeka is the newest Nigerian lawyer to be admitted to the bar.
According to Barrister NG, she was called to the bar on Wednesday, July 28th, at the age of 20.
The girl, from Okigwe, Imo State, completed her secondary education at the age of 13 and was accepted into ABSU, but she was denied entrance since she was under the age of 18.
Her father then sent her to India to study law, where she finished with honors before returning to Nigeria to attend 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.
