Enenu Okwori - Our students - University of Derby

Enenu Okwori, LLM student

Enenu is from Nigeria and studied civil law at an undergraduate level in Nigeria before going on to the Nigerian Law School. She was called to the Nigerian Bar in late 2013 as a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

Setting her sights on lecturing and on gaining a PhD, Enenu knew an LLM was the first step towards this. She's currently studying an LLM in Human Rights full-time.

Feeling a connection with Derby

"I applied for three universities in the UK. Even though I got accepted by all three, I just couldn't pick any of the others; I had my eyes on Derby. There was this connection that I can't explain, and when I got in touch with the school, they made me feel like I was part of them already."

An amazing experience so far

"My course is really amazing because it goes beyond the mere knowledge of human rights and delves into actual happenings around the world. This inspires me to want to contribute to helping humanity.

"I have enjoyed the teaching and interactive sessions a lot, even though the course is demanding. The fact that tutors want to hear my views about everything, makes me feel more important."

Life after the LLM

"I hope to work with the United Nations to foster development, and move on to a PhD in criminal psychology to become a professor and lecture."
