Akeem Iyanda


Key Info

  • Bachelor of Laws

Akeem came to the University of Waikato from Nigeria after corresponding with the International Students' Team. "They were nice and caring and I chose to study Law at Te Piringa."

During his study, he felt he got to experience everything to do with being a lawyer. "I attended court hearings, met with clients and drafted documents. I learnt how to do exactly what I would be doing when I finished studying."

I found Waikato to be a conducive learning environment, and the support available met my needs. There are also lots of opportunities for self-improvement and growth.

Graduating from the University and getting admitted to the bar as a barrister and solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand is one of my proudest moments.
