(CNS Local Life): Walkers recently hosted a special Alumni evening in honour of the “50 and counting” articled clerks who have undergone legal training with the firm and have been called to the Cayman Islands Bar since 1983, including now retired practitioners, those still practising law in the Cayman Islands and many others who have gone on to successful careers outside the law.

Among the attendees were Walkers’ Cayman-based partners, along with the firm’s current intake of six Caymanian articled clerks, who are due to be called to the Bar in the next couple of years. 

“We are very proud of Walkers’ Legal Training Programme and the opportunities it has provided to generations of Caymanian lawyers,” Caroline Heal, Chair of Walkers’ Cayman Trainee Committee, said at the event. “It is always such a pleasure to see so many alumni, friends and prominent members of the business community returning to celebrate with us, which is testament to the work that has been put into developing this programme over the past 36 years.”

Global Managing Partner Ingrid Pierce commented, “I am extremely proud of our articled clerks and felt it was important to continue to honour their hard work and success with this special celebratory event, which also provides them with an opportunity to network with peers and members of the local business community.”    

Guests included Governor Martyn Roper, Premier Alden McLaughlin, Deputy Governor Franz Manderson, representatives from local secondary and tertiary education institutions, former and current articled clerks and staff involved with the programme at Walkers.
