From very humble beginnings, Nwabueze has become one of the most outstanding women in the field of Law. She is currently a member of Resolution (Solicitors family Law Association), and she is a director of the Black Solicitors Network (BSN), having chaired the network as well. Currently she is being supported by BSN to be re-elected as Law Society Ethnic Minority Council Member. The BSN board has stated that “She is one of the incumbent Ethnic Minority members and has worked tirelessly across the country to ensure that issues affecting BSN Members are heard by the Law Society Council.” She is involved in voluntary work, both professionally, and non-professionally. Non- professionally, she does voluntary work via the church, and the prison service. As a Council Member, she is involved in concerns of the ethnic minority.

Having been inspired by her father, who was a lawyer, she studied law at the University of Nigeria and in 1978, and she was called to the Nigerian bar. When her family moved to England in 1986, she had to study so as to be recognized as a solicitor, and had to take care of her family too. She was able to complete her study by the help of supportive employers. She has qualifications in Finance and mortgage lending. She also has received training in mediation, and has founded AIMs, (All Issues Mediation Service,) which deals with mediation in the family and community. ‘AIMs’ is part of a not-for-profit service which she set up in memory of her parents, who passed on. She is a lady who doesn’t give up. She was able to stand for the Law Society Council, and successfully got it at a second attempt.
