Oluwafunbi Karunwi

Oluwafunbi is one of a handful of Black people in the legal profession within Scotland. She was once told by her teachers that she would never become a lawyer. She proved her teacher wrong! She went on to gain a legal internship and was the only intern to secure a two-year trainee solicitor contract immediately after the internship. She is now partway through her traineeship, and we look forward to celebrating with her upon completion. She is an Inclusion and Diversity champion at work, where her role is to research and network with universities, companies and organisations, and find opportunities of collaboration. She has been featured in the Law Society Scotland Journal. She received recognition and a Bravo award for her involvement in a Career ready program. This program seeks to support young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to develop their confidence and skills.
