Court attachment


We’re into the third week of court attachment now. It’s going well and I am loving Lagos. It’s a good thing I didn’t write after the first day or the first week because that would have been premature and I didn’t really enjoy it.

The first day, I found out Continue reading

Update #3

Hi everyone!

Just a quick update. My reference has finally been sent off. All I have to do is wait for the law school to update my application and then wait till June 17th to see whether I have gotten in. Fingers crossed that the next time I post about my law school application it will be that it has been successful and I am on my way to Nigeria!!! 🙂


Update #1

I have printed and sent my application form. They should have gotten it by now so I just need to wait for my law school to send off my reference. I can’t wait to take the next step and I pray that I get in. I need a plan B in case I don’t but I’ve already got it in my head that I’m going! I looked at my blog and saw that the countdown has gone from 2 months to 1 month.  I wish I could quickly jump to June and see whether I’ve gotten in or not. Looking back, the application process has been pretty simple. I was being extra (slang for being OTT) and just caused myself unnecessary stress but it’s not like that’s new.

I was looking at some sort of work experience and I am going to resume the search. It is hard and frustrating but I don’t want to do nothing. I need options. Whether I get in now or have to apply again, I have to work and get some experience. I have been in education for too long! I don’t know if any of you have watched Desmond’s…

First Ever Blog

Hi! This is the first blog that I have ever written. I’ve written in diaries before but I’ve never posted anything like this online. Why did I start? I currently live in London and I am applying to go the Nigerian Law School. I was looking online to see if I could find information apart from what is on their website. As informative as it is, there were still things that I wanted to know such as the living situation and etc. While googling, I came across less than five blogs but two stood out. The first is Naija Daydreamer by miss b. She also writes stories which I have also loved doing since I was young. I am trying to get back to it but that’s a story for some other time. The second, my favourite, is Musings of a Caramel Latte Addict by Temiville . She has also been documenting her time at the Nigerian Law School as well as other things. They are both international students who have had to go through Bar I (the first part of law school for people who have not studied law in Nigeria).

After I read these blogs, I thought, “Why not?”. Like they have helped me, I hope to be able to help others that want to go to law school in Nigeria. First things first, I have to get in. I am sending my application off and hopefully in June, I’ll know whether I am moving to Nigeria. In this blog, I’ll be talking about my application process and hopefully if I get in, I’ll also share things about my time at law school.

I also hope to talk about things that are happening in the world (especially Nigeria) and random things like reality TV shows (my guilty pleasure).

I hope you like this blog,
