Ijeoma specialises in equality, employment, industrial and public law and professional regulation, practising from Old Square Chambers. She is a mediator, Fee Paid Employment and Mental Health Tribunal judge.







“My scholarship interview at Gray’s Inn was my first encounter with the legal profession. There were lots of things I didn’t know but I did know that I wanted to be a barrister. I believed I could be a barrister and Gray’s believed it too. They gave me a scholarship which helped me take the first steps on my journey to fulfilling that ambition.

When I have had moments of doubt and disappointment, friends and colleagues in the Inn have encouraged and supported me in ways I never expected.

Gray’s Inn helped me become a barrister and is a big part of the reason I am still a barrister today.”
