CNS Local Life(CNS Local Life): Students can now apply for legal scholarships, articles of clerkship and internships at Appleby (Cayman), representatives of which will be at the Chamber of Commerce Careers Expo on Friday, 23 February to provide more information. The Appleby scholarship covers the cost of tuition/registration, examinations and textbooks, and students are also provided with a monthly stipend to cover any additional expenses.

“Our objective at Appleby is to enable young Caymanians to succeed in a legal career by providing them with the necessary tools to achieve their goals,” said Christine Grizzel, head of operations and human resources at the law firm. “There are numerous benefits to these programmes, which provide mentorship and training in addition to financial assistance.”

Upon completion of their studies, scholarship recipients can transition into the articled clerk training programme, which has an 18-month cycle that begins in September, stated an Appleby press release. During this time each trainee is required to complete six different three-month seats in the following core practice areas: corporate, trusts, property and dispute resolution.

Each articled clerk is assigned a mentor who assesses their performance on a quarterly basis. At the end of the training contract, articled clerks may be offered full-time employment with Appleby and, upon successful completion of their articles, the trainee is admitted as an attorney. Individuals looking to undertake articles of clerkship with the firm who have not been previous scholarship recipients can also apply to be admitted into the training programme.

“On-the-job experience is a top priority at Appleby. We also provide a number of summer internships each year to young Caymanians to work within our business support team, and we look forward to continually offering these rewarding opportunities,” Grizzel said.

Deadline for applications is 31 March 2018. For more information go to the Appleby website

    Great opportunity. Can anyone explain what has happened to all the Caymanians they trained over the years?
