Brief profile

Funke Akoni

“Life happens to all of us. It is not what happens to us but how we react to it that defines the quality of our lives.”

I am a Legal Practitioner, Mediator and Arbitrator. I attended the prestigious University of Ibadan where I obtained an LL.B degree in Law in 1985 before proceeding to the Nigerian Law School after which I was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1986. I have since worked in different sectors of the economy both in Nigeria and in the United Kingdom.

Even though I have been a Legal Practitioner for over 20 years , I am passionate about mediating. I have been a mediator for about 5 years and have amassed relevant experience both commercial law and Family Law, mediating in disputes of diverse nature.

Apart from mediation, I am a knowledge enthusiast and lifelong learner with varied interests. This website is designed to be a platform for sharing some of my learning points especially as regards how to live a full and fulfilling life in latter years .

You are welcome to explore the website, read the articles and connect with me for further meaningful engagements.
