Here are some captures of our activities
It is the earnest desire of most students to bag first class honours upon graduation from the University and I am no exception. I truly had no other long term goal for my undergraduate studies. Fortunately for me, owing to the occurrence of this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, I came across Diverse Law Virtual Internship program flier, requesting for interested applicants. Though I was initially sceptical, I went ahead to apply for it. On the first day of the Internship program, the speaker made a statement that changed my perspective. She said: "Graduating with a first class without more, was a short sighted goal which I came to realize very gradually." Hearing those words, I felt like she was sent personally to talk to me. Those words were a truism that I would come to realize eventually. I will never forget the essence and impact of last week in my life; where I learned: - The essence of good grades. - The importance of extra curricular activities - The relevance of Internships, Networking, Emotional intelligence, Productivity... - The importance of soft skills. - The art of letter and email writing. - Tips on interview and legal research. Etc To crown it all, at the end of the internship, I was declared the "Best Intern", a recognition I do not take for granted. I really can't express my gratitude in words. Massive thanks to Diverse Law for this opportunity. There is no better way to show my gratitude than to put to use all that I have learnt and that, I will do. To my fellow Interns and undergraduates out there, we all are the best. We are in the 21st century and there are lot of opportunities out there. Make good use of each one you are opportuned to come across. Never underestimate your capabilities, as with God on our side, we will do exploit. I'm most obliged, Thank you all, and God bless you.
"Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything." - Hill Cate I only applied for Diverse Law internship 2.0 with the desire and hope to 'just' get enlightened but the training given was even more than I silently required for. Starting from Anuoluwatoyosi Onikosi who spelt out the essence of extracurriculars, to Abidemi Oyewole to talked on Emotional Intelligence (this really got my attention), to Ifeoluwa Ogunbunfunmi who discussed the beauty of Internship, Philips Adeyemi and Mary Martins who topped my knowledge on formal writing and Legal Research respectively! They are not just speakers but Legal Luminaries!!! Thank you all for the impartation Seeing the speakers appear in a flyer seems regular until they divulged the information they had in them. To anyone, the information given could have sounded regular too but in some ways I don't understand. My mind has been reformed! To all aspiring lawyers out there who are still scrutinizing their way through like myself, I'll implore you to just make use of opportunities that comes your way, either they appear big or small, regular or Irregular, just take hold it. Thanks to Diverse Law Board for this amazing privilege. Also thanks to Faith Oluwaferanmi Olafimihan for informing me about Diverse Law.
As a young girl my dream has always to become better, make impact and give back to humanity. My passion to become better everyday cannot be undermined and taking this course at Diverse Law was a step in getting to my goal Every session at the internship was one to look forward to as I learnt, unlearned and relearned new things. At the diverse law virtual training 1.0 I was groomed, nurtured and impacted. I was also privileged to have emerged BEST INTERN in participation and task delivery, this came with a reward of an internship with a TOP FIRM in Nigerian I am most grateful to the Diverse law board for this opportunity, I can only say that I am excited to break new grounds with the experience I have now . To my fellow undergraduates, embrace the several opportunities diverse law has to offer, keep working hard,with God on our side and consistency we would all get to the top. Iteoluwakiisi Akinwole O. Certified Legal Intern, Diverse Law. Year 3, Babcock University, Nigeria.
At the Diverse Law internship 1.0 I was able to put the different pieces of the puzzle together. I was able to make sense of the need for not just an internship experience but an efficient internship experience. The Diverse Law internship experience is well tailored to expose the law student to the realities of the Legal profession and prepare them for the challenges ahead. It's the perfect opportunity to get equipped with necessary soft skills to florish as an intern and a law student. The Diverse Law internship experience is a great experience.
