Seven receive Appleby legal education boost
A $30,000 legal education award has been presented to Karim Creary by Appleby.
Mr Creary is a graduate from St Lawrence University and has been a legal intern at Appleby since November 2017. He begins his GDL at The University of Law next month.
“Having spent close to the last two years at Appleby, working within the corporate, central records and compliance departments I am glad that my experience has culminated into my reception of the Legal Education Award,” he said.
“The knowledge that Appleby is willing to invest in my future, and believes that I can accomplish my goal of becoming a qualified lawyer is a positive reassurance as I prepare to complete the GDL course. Thank you to all of the Appleby family who have guided me along my way and made this possible.”
For the last 40 years, the Partners of Appleby have provided awards and bursaries to qualified Bermudian applicants who have demonstrated academic excellence within the legal field, community outreach and extracurricular activities.
In addition, the firm has awarded legal education bursaries. The six recipients, who also have the option to apply for summer internship opportunities, are:
• Kristin Dill, who is attending Queen Mary University of London in September, starting her LLB;
• Zantae Dill, who is attending The University of Law in September, starting her LPC with a MSC in Business Management;
• Conor Hay, who is attending King’s College London in September, starting his LLB;
• Ligaya Sanchez-Wilson, who is attending City, University of London in September, starting her joint Bar Professional Training Course and Master of Laws in Bar Professional Training
• Kaisha Wilson, who is attending BBP University Law School in September, starting her LPC;
• Nicole Yearwood, who is currently studying at University of Leeds, going into her final year LLB.
Tim Faries, Bermuda Managing Partner, said: “Appleby is committed to providing educational opportunities to Bermudian students who are interested in pursuing a career in law.
“This year’s award and bursary recipients are a stellar group of academic and community-minded young Bermudians who are sure to make long-lasting contributions to Bermuda’s professional industry and community.
“We wish Karim and the many other deserving recipients the best of luck during their studies this year.”
