Iyare Otabor-Olubor, a doctoral candidate within the Centre for Business and Insolvency Law at Nottingham Law School, was recently the Law School's delegate to the International Conference of Nigerian Students held at the premises of the De Montfort University in Leicester on 10-12 June 2016. The event, which is now in its tenth year, is organised annually by the Xn Foundation, a charity founded in 2006 by a group of Nigerian students, then at Lancaster University, whose aim is to empower sustainability and stimulate creativity in the young people of Nigeria.

The focus of the event, which was very well attended by students from across the United Kingdom and further afield, was on the theme of Legacy and Opportunities. Over the three days, speakers drawn from the Nigerian diaspora addressed themes such as entrepreneurship, leadership, careers and skills development as well as the integration of Nigerian students in international communities and the development of a positive image for Nigeria abroad through its student ambassadors.
