Tell us about your position and leadership at LAWGLOBAL HUB LTD:

I, Inioluwa Olaposi, am the Founder and CEO of LAWGLOBAL HUB LTD. I currently lead a team of Nigerian and Indian staff to manage and improve our online content repository.

I believe in providing easily accessible information, and I aspire that LawGlobal Hub would reach more people in various nations, even in places where we currently have an impact. I also aspire to bring more advancing innovation to the legal world through technology.

I founded LawHub NG in late 2020. The legal repository was listed as one of the top law blogs in Nigeria at the time. With grace and tenacity, under my management, LawHub NG metamorphosed into LawGlobal Hub in December 2021. From that time, I have managed the affairs of volunteers, who have now formed the staff of the company.

I oversee the publications made on our website, as well as our LinkedIn page. Officers at LawGlobal Hub are in charge of various duties such as content creation, publication, as well as promotion. As the director, I assign relevant roles to appropriate persons and set specific deadlines. I make sure each task is well performed for the furtherance of our core objectives.

Also, as a search engine optimizer, I create new strategies for our content to stay above competition on search engine result pages.

It is my goal that more people in local communities around the globe would have easy access to legal information and resources, and I fulfill this by directing the company.
