Hay awarded Conyers’ legal scholarship
Conor Hay is the recipient of law firm Conyers’ 2019 legal scholarship award.
Presented annually to a Bermudian enrolled in a law degree programme, the award is valued at $30,000 per year for a maximum of three years, the firm said.
Mr Hay will be attending King’s College, University of London. He is a 2019 graduate of Warwick Academy, where he was head boy and valedictorian, achieving 43 out of a possible 45 points in the international baccalaureate.
The firm said that he is also an outstanding musician, achieving a distinction in the Associate of the Royal Schools of Music violin diploma and winning the 2019 Bermuda Outstanding Teen Award for performing arts.
Mr Hay said: “I feel extremely fortunate to receive the Conyers legal scholarship award, and I am very appreciative of the opportunity provided by the award, as it will make an enormous difference as I pursue a law degree at King’s College, London. The community is fortunate that Conyers provides such generous support and financial assistance to students as they pursue legal education.”
Sophia Greaves, director, on behalf of the scholarship selection committee, said: “Conyers is committed to supporting students in Bermuda that are looking to embark on a career in law. Conor is an exceptional individual with an impressive list of achievements both academic and extracurricular. We are very pleased to name him this year’s scholarship recipient.”
Conyers has also awarded four new bursaries to Bermudian law students to help further their legal education. The recipients are Ciara Burrows, Ryan Robinson Perinchief, Nicole Yearwood, and Shayla Smith.
The firm said it has donated more than $1.2 million to legal education in the past five years in the form of its legal scholarship award and various bursaries.
