Bolanle started her legal studies in Ogun State, Nigeria where she obtained her LLB degree. She obtained her LLM at the University of Wales Bangor, where she received the Routledge & Cavendish Law Best Taught Postgraduate Student and Best LLM Student awards. She received her PhD from UCL in February 2013.

Bolanle is dually qualified as Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria. She has served in legal service departments and law firms where she provided advice on Contract Law, Company and Commercial Law, as well as Insolvency Law. Bolanle has also interned with the Office of Legal Affairs of the United Nations (HQ), where she worked on UN Contracts, Tribunal and Arbitration cases.

Bolanle taught on the Corporate Restructuring LLM module at Kingston University and was a teaching fellow on International Commercial Arbitration LLM module before joining the faculty as a fulltime Postdoctoral Associate.


 Bolanle’s research is on Corporate Insolvency Law. Currently she focuses on international corporate rescue models. Bolanle takes a theoretical and comparative approach to her research. Her project examines the fundamental elements of corporate rescue and analyses rescue models in light of these. Bolanle also explores insolvency and corporate rescue systems in Africa. The African research largely infuses empirical research methods with the theoretical approach. For her empirical studies in Nigeria she received a joint grant from the UCL Graduate School and the UCL Faculty of Laws. She is also a past recipient of the Edwin Coe LLP Young Scholar Travel Grant for disseminating research.
