In addition to the Legal Education Awards, the firm offers an unmatched suite of comprehensive student programmes in Bermuda designed to foster professional development.

Our Gap-Year Internship programme allows recent graduates from Bermuda senior schools, or those already enrolled in an undergraduate or Masters programme, to gain real-world experience working in different areas of the firm. Other initiatives include our ongoing networking and open house events where students can explore what it means to pursue a path in law.
