Caymanian students benefit from working alongside Appleby's legal experts
Appleby recently opened its doors to 13 Caymanian students, who had applied to spend time working alongside the law firm’s experts in the legal, fiduciary and business services departments over the summer period.
Sponsored by Appleby to study law abroad, Appolina Bent and Farrah Miller shadowed lawyers within the firm’s corporate and commercial practice group, while Bianca Leacock and Katie Fleming spent time with its litigation lawyers.
Anthony Hurlston gained experience through the corporate services team at Appleby Trust (Cayman).
A further eight students — Ann-Alecia Moore, Ashley Holness, Aveana Watler, Chrishaunna Trowers, Erin Powell, Henry Bolton, Raphael Powery and Tayvis Walters — from the Cayman Islands Furthering Education Centre, University College of the Cayman Islands and Passport2Success programme completed internships within Appleby’s corporate services, client accounting, operations, information technology and marketing teams.
Appleby also recently welcomed to its Articled Clerk Programme Lisa Donalds and Victoria King, both of whom received grants from Appleby to complete their legal studies. They join articled clerks Brigitte Tomascik and Sophie Benbow, who are expected to complete the programme later this year, after which they will be called to the Cayman Islands bar.
