Zainab studied for a law degree very late in life and obtained her post grad degree in 2011. Without an undergraduate’s degree and having taken a non traditional route, she struggled for that door to open. After almost 6 years of continued perseverance she was finally admitted as a Solicitor in April 2019 and now practices law mainly in the areas of Dispute Resolution and employment.
She was recently nominated for Leicestershire Law Society Annual Legal Awards Trainee of the Year 2019. Zainab is a Main committee member of Leicestershire Law Society and a member of their Education & Training and Membership sub boards.
Additionally, Zainab is an Employability Mentor and volunteers for Leicester University Pro Bono Legal Clinic. She aims to guide and mentor as many people with a vision for imparting perseverance.
And when she's not doing all of the above, she loves to ‘lecture’ her 4 children and take her motorbike for a spin.
