30 year old Nigerian/British lawyer Tunde Okewale was included in GQ magazine’s list of the 35 “coolest” men under 38 years old. Tunde, who comes in at number 33, was called to bar in 2007.

The human rights advocate was listed alongside the likes of Prince William, Drake and Tom Hardy. GQ described Tunde as having “celebrity” status within the English legal profession. The mag said Tunde was included in the list because he “was named one of the best-looking men in the legal world” by several blogs and also because he set up Urban lawyers, an organisation that is making the law accessible to young people.

 

Born to Nigerian parents, Tunde Okewale came to the UK when he was just a year old. He grew up on a council estate in Hackney, London and put himself through law school working at Sainsbury’s.

 

Speaking about his life, Tunde said:

“I am a black kid from a working class family that grew up in Hackney, and I am hoping that young people will look at me and say, ‘if he can do it, I can do it’. It doesn’t have to be something in the legal profession, whatever you are passionate about go for it and give it your all.”
