She joined more than 1,000 lawyers who were registered with the bar on Friday, October 20, 2023. After this milestone, people have praised her.
Sena Dadzawa Tabbicca, a social media user, posted lawyer Elorm Aku’s credentials on Facebook and wrote:
”Golden Age School, SOS Hermann Gmeiner Int. School, WEY GEY HEY 2007, Natsu, KNUST 2012, University of Reading 2014, UPSA Law School 2020, Ghana Law School 2023. Introducing your new lawyer, SELORM AKU DADZAWA ESQ,” the message read“It started as a joke with my mother, who said she wanted me and my sister to go to law school. She indicated that she would finance the Bachelor of Laws (LLB). We considered it at the time. The interest developed over time. Firstly, because I thought the law would help my Human Resource career. I also wanted a career that I could pursue after retirement. It was also about securing my future and joining the noble profession,” Selorm tells YEN.com.gh.

Balance between law school and school
She admitted that it was difficult to juggle school and work while raising her two females.
”It was difficult. It was one of the most challenging things I’ve had to do, being a mother and a musician/employee. It was a difficult journey. The financial burden also became a challenge because my mother thought we could handle it. She had played her role and I had to do it independently from the second year onwards,” she said.
After overcoming obstacles, including finances, Selorm has become an inspiration to many.
‘Start when you have something to do. Start if you really want to do it. Always build and expand your network; you can only do that with the help of others. Be deliberate in building good friendships because it will benefit you. Know that you can be anything you want at any time. I am living proof,” she told YEN.com.gh.
