MY SIBLINGS
YES! Without doubt, this also contributed
to my choice of career. It is not the case
that all my siblings, or should I say
brothers, were lawyers or would-be
lawyers. Rather, it is quite the opposite.
The three of them chose to go to the
science department while in senior high.
My eldest brother, now a graduate and
bonafide member of the Nigerian labour
force, studied computer science while in
school. The ‘second in command’ is
currently ‘reading’ Estate management in a
federal university of technology. And my
immediate elder brother is studying pure
chemistry at present.
It is a source of pride for me, actually, to
be the only ‘black sheep’, the only art
student, the only historian, the only
literary expert, the only political analyst
and, most importantly, the only learned
child of the four of us.
...
“THE INCORRUPTIBLE JUDGE”
“The incorruptible Judge”. This is a book I
read in my early childhood. It is authored
by Olu D. Olagoke. The theme of this book
centre on a judge who is morally upright,
who is incorruptible. Then a matter got to
his court involving, if I remember corectly,
his friend and a rich personality. He was
presurised and offered a bribe. However,
he would not budge. He stood his ground,
and repeatedly asserted that he will only
judge based on the pieces of evidence
adduced before him in the court. And
eventually, he did convict the accused
person for he was glaringly guilty.
His attitude is analogous to that of Justice
Sowemimo, who told Chief Obafemi
Awolowo in 1963, when the latter
appeared before him for a 3-count charge
of conspiracy and treasonable felony,
that,”Here we have one of the first
premiers of the autonomous region
standing trial. If you were the only one
before me, I would have felt that it was
enough for you to have undergone the
strain of the trial. I would have asked you
to go. But I am sorry. I cannot do so now
because my hands are tied.”
In a nutshell, I desired to be like this judge.
I wanted to be a principled man, who has
clearly defined his values, and then would
stop at nothing to defend those values. A
man who would not compromise his
integrity because of familiarity or mere
gratification.

CONCLUSION
...
Well, there you have it. This is the synopsis
of the major factors that culminated into
my choice of law as a career. I might
decide to add some more later on. I did
not see my future in a trance, I’m not a
gifted dreamer. I was not coerced into the
decision, my parents gave me absolute
freedom in the aspect. And neither is it
because my zodiac sign is libra, in actualty,
by bbirthday falls in that of virgo. It is my
eldest brother is a libra, and he is not a
llawyer.
I want to believe you’ve been exposed to
some new facts, as a result of your reading
this article. If my guess is right, then I’m
glad my effort is not wasted.
Now all want to ask you is, after reading
this, if you desire to choose a career for
yourself, or perhaps your advice is sought
regarding career choice, WHY NOT LAW?

Truth be told your write up is o naive to say the least. It makes me sad that people like u are law aspirants.
Law is prestigious? lol...because students wear white & black and have their own department which doubles as a faculty?
Lawyers are advocates of justice..lol..are u even in Nigeria? Who do u think helps politicians evade the law?
Law is lucrative? Av u not seen ur charge & bail colleagues lavishing? The "lucky" one working in chambers hardly get paid living wages.
Law is noble? I pity u. That profession is now a joke on the lips of all & sundry. Who even goes to court today save for land litigants & unlucky police victims.....and you "synopsis" is justified by a novel written by an idealistic non-lawyer like you? Sorry 4 us. lol

Career / Re: Accountants' Forum. by nwachukwuaca18(m): 11:19pm On Aug 06, 2014
Accountancy when juxtaposed with others careers such as law seems to be lagging behind, lacking elitism and even implied prestige. Am to study accountancy @ uniport soon and i cant help thinking that its quite a waste since everybody can now be "
accountant" than to ICAN.
