Esther Chukwuemeka, a young girl who completed her secondary school education at the age of 13, got denied her university admission by ABSU because she was underaged and has now been called to the Nigerian Bar
Her father picked up the challenge and sent her to India to study law, she graduated with flying colors, then came back to Nigeria and studied everything about Nigerian law under one year, took her law school exams, and came out successful.

“AND SHE BROKE THE ACADEMIC RECORD
……….She is now a full-fledged barrister
Esther Chukwuemeka was only thirteen years old at the time she wrote her senior secondary school certificate examination.
When the result was finally out, the whiz kid came out in flying colours. She then sat for the JAMB examination and was given admission at Abia State University. She was denied her quick pursuit of the golden fleece because she was still underaged.
Her ambitious father took up the gauntlet, defied this impediment and sent him to the second most highly populated country in the world, India to read her dream course, law.
She came out unscathed within the record time, came back to Nigeria, enrolled for the mandatory Nigerian Law School examination.
Today, She is being called to the bar with the appellation of a Solicitor and Advocate of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
Barrister Esther Chukwuemeka has indeed entered the history books as one of the youngest lawyers in the country today.
She showed class and brilliance when the young lass braced all odds to pursue a law degree.
Today we join her family, associates, friends, and well-wishers in congratulating her for this worthy academic feat. She is indeed an inspiration to her generation.”
