We congratulate our Associate, Inyene Robert, who has been selected for the 2019 Africa Arbitration Academy, which is scheduled to hold in London. The 2019 cohort is the representation of about 15 countries in Africa.
Inyene is an Associate in the Firm’s Litigation, Arbitration and ADR Practice Group. Inyene completed her LL.B programme as the second-best graduating student at the University of Abuja and went on to pursue her LL.M in Advanced Legal Studies at the University of Warwick, United Kingdom, which she completed with a distinction grade.
