Case Study : Nigeria.
Who is an “IJGB”? Any Lady who recently moved back from some specific foreign countries : USA, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland etc can be referred to as an “I just got back lady”.

Based on Direct and Indirect Observation I found the need to write an article to some people i.e: guys/ladies who fall into this category because of some behavioural traits they posses which may not help them assimilate and adapt to their current environment which is Nigeria.
Social Psychologists believe that any individual who can successfully blend in 2 or more environments can easily gain success or the Appropriate Interactive skills for success. Disclaimer: This Article does not apply to all “IJGB” People / Ladies.
It is not breaking news that there has always been a very heated tension between Foreign Trained Lawyers and Nigerian Trained Lawyers. Foreign trained lawyers enroll in Bar 1 while Nigerian trained lawyers join the “IJGB” in Bar 2 where they all meet to pursue their dreams to become Lawyers. Based on interviews and surveys from some people I know in law school both Nigerian and Foreign Trained Lawyers.
Some “IJGB” look down on Nigerian trained lawyers, they refer to them as the “Locals”, they have little or minimal contact with them, they don’t want to sit beside the “locals” or Nigerian trained lawyers, they make fun of their dictions; saying they have “H” factor and “R” factor. The major cause of the disagreement is that some “IJGB” believe that they are superior to Nigerian trained and Nigerian trained lawyers are jealous of their fancy accents and degrees.. It was was said that some Nigerian trained lawyers have inferior complex for the “IJGB” hence they act defensively towards them.
