It is indeed an interesting and invaluable learning experience. Few months into the program, I can confidently say that being an AB National Service Trainee has showed me how leading global law firms operate, it has taught me how professional lawyers work and interact, what service standards are required by clients, and which projects are handled by the different practices. As an Trainee AB, I am happy to know we are not restricted to a particular practice area. There is always an opportunity to move around if you show significant interest and you have exhibited requisite skills.
“The Aina Blankson Incubation Leadership Program has exposed me to the rudiments of the legal profession and presented me with a solid foundation to thrive. During the program, I have actively participated in major and complex transactions handled by the Firm. Also, I was given the opportunity to interface directly with clients.
All in all, the Program was a good experience for me as I have improved my writing, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. The Firm has inspired me to be a better version of myself.”
AB's impressive range of clients and work, coupled with the professional yet informal nature of the work environment, made an immediate impact on me. From the beginning of the graduate program, I was involved in the highest quality of legal work, providing litigation and general corporate advice.
Much of the experience I gained during the graduate program was real 'hands-on'. I have been given a high level of responsibility and the opportunity to work on several high-level transactions and proposals with the senior lawyers, that has meant the work has always been stimulating and rewarding
“About ten years ago, a young lawyer, with great vision, approached some of the topmost men in the country. That young lawyer was exceedingly restless in regard to what could be done to improve our justice system. He saw that the pace of administration of justice in the country was ridiculously too slow and damaging to the economy of the nation. The justice system to be meaningful, he claimed, must be revolutionalized. That young man is Kehinde Aina, a seasoned lawyer, imbued with the spirit of selfless service. He is an asset to the country”.
