In the news of Nigerians practising law abroad, Abimbola Johnson spoke about the realities she faces in UK being a criminal defense lawyer.
Abimbola said that her experience in a white-dominated country has made her sensitive to how a person’s identity can affect them in life.
In talking about her work and skin, she said that sometimes she is the only one sharing the same blackness with her clients in courts.
“My blackness also means that often I’m the only person in court that shares skin colour with my clients and there are times when I’ve understood a cultural context to their instructions that has not been picked up by others,” she said.
