Graduates & Law Students

Pupillage Programme

Recruiting the right pupils is of paramount importance to the success of Conyers. Once they join the firm, we train our pupils to be the best young lawyers in the industry. We invest in every individual to ensure they reach their full potential and fulfil their ambitions” – Kevin Butler, Partner & Head of the Cayman Islands Office.

There is no such thing as a typical candidate. We are open-minded and are interested in people who share that quality. Naturally, we are looking for individuals who have strong academic qualifications – ideally 2:1 at degree level. Beyond this, we want to see evidence of teamwork, motivation and drive, communication skills, planning and organization, critical thinking, commercial awareness and commitment, both to a career in law and a career with us.

Invested in You

We offer suitably qualified Bermudian, Caymanian and Virgin Islander candidates pupillage and training opportunities that ensure professional experience in a range of areas. Our pupils and trainees work in a stimulating and supportive environment with senior lawyers, many of whom are recognised leaders in their practice areas.

We invite you to further explore pupillage/training with us by submitting a pupillage or training programme application.
