Ngozi is Lex Conscientia’s newest team member. She is a Legal Support Executive with a multi-faceted role providing assistance across our range of services to clients. In particular, she provides support with writing and drafting; proofreading contracts and other legal documents; and recruitment and research. Her role also encompasses general administrative duties.
Ngozi qualified and practised as a Barrister and Solicitor overseas, before requalifying as a Solicitor in England. She has considerable administrative experience gained in broad range of public-oriented organisations, including the Greenwich Citizens Advice Bureaux, a Public Enquiry Office and the Ministry of Justice’s family courts in London, where she aided judges. She has also worked as a lead exams invigilator at a Harris Academy.
She is passionate about improving diversity in the legal sector and is an active participant in diversity-related programmes within the legal profession. Alongside others, she was invited to provide a response to a Consultation Paper on diversity in the judiciary prepared by the Department for Constitutional Affairs.
After a period working outside the legal field, Ngozi attended a returners event organised by the Law Society as part of their Back to Law programme. This led to an introduction to Lex Conscientia, given our active support for the programme, and to Ngozi subsequently joining us.
Ngozi has a strong interest in community work and has been associated with a housing aid charity, a Volunteer Centre supported by a local council and a local library.
