Year of Call:
Adeola graduated from the University of Hull with a first class in Law with Criminology. She successfully completed the Bar Course with a Very Competent, from City University and was called to the Bar of England and Wales in December 2019.
Prior to commencing pupillage, Adeola volunteered with the charity IPSEA, representing parents of children with special educational needs and disabilities at the First-tier Tribunal. She has experience in education appeals including ‘refusal to assess’ and appealing EHC plans. The accuracy and strength of her written submissions has resulted in local authorities making significant concessions. Adeola also honed her case preparation and advocacy skills by acting in disability discrimination claims.
In 2018, Adeola was appointed by former High Court Judge, Dame Linda Dobbs to Project Manage the Dame Linda Dobbs Review, a review into whether Lloyds Banking Group investigated and appropriately reported issues arising from the HBOS Reading Fraud following their acquisition of HBOS in 2009.
In 2017, Adeola provided advisory services to the Leader of the Opposition. As a constituency caseworker she used her written advocacy skills to obtain favourable decisions for constituents in cases of real social significance. She had sole responsibility for the ‘Windrush’ cases that came to the office, for example.
Adeola has served as a School Governor in a local primary school and as an Independent Monitoring Board member at an Immigration Detention Centre. Her considerable experience of public appointments and public facing work means that she has a very personable approach coupled with a good understanding of public policy considerations.
In her spare time Adeola provides free educational tuition to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. She also enjoys swimming, keeping fit and Latin dance.
