Folasade Famakinwa L’21


“My internship at Aluko & Oyebode had an incredible impact on me. Aluko & Oyebode is a premier Nigerian commercial law firm. The firm’s attorneys are experts in a wide variety of fields, ranging from capital markets to international arbitration. As a summer intern, I had the opportunity to put the legal research and writing skills that I had developed over the past year to use in an African context. In particular, I had to research questions of Nigerian law, which was a challenge simply because of Nigeria’s relative youth - this was reflected in its legal systems. Nonetheless, I enjoyed this challenge, because it forced me to continue to hone my ability to be proactive and search for answers that are not so easily apparent. As a result of this experience, I am committed to pursuing a cross-border practice that deals in African markets. I would primarily recommend this experience to 1Ls who possess this same interest.”
