Marshall Diel & Myers offers pupillages at firm, $15,000 scholarship

There’s no question that pursuing a law degree requires commitment and hard work, but it is absolutely worth it as the legal field provides students with one of the most diverse degrees in the job market.

Every day of every year, individuals, companies and organisations depend on the services of a lawyer or law firm.

Marshall Diel & Myers Limited is committed to developing the future of the Bar in Bermuda by offering annual pupillages, summer positions and an annual scholarship award to suitably qualified applicants.

The Firm is searching for candidates who are personable, assured and have the abilities to service our clients’ needs with the highest level of competence. They will be focused, intelligent and possess an excellent academic record.

All candidates will be committed to returning to Bermuda to practice law.

While candidates have been selected for the summer positions in 2013, the deadline for applications for the pupillage programme is the 31st of May 2013.

As Marshall Diel & Myers’ attorneys practice in the areas of matrimonial and family, commercial and trust litigation, insolvency, commercial and regulatory, immigration, employment and property law, real estate transactions, and wills and estates, a pupil can expect to receive a broad and varied learning experience with the Firm.

“The directors wish to continue to provide the highest level of professional and effective service to our clients,” Rachael Barritt, head of the Student Committee

“We believe that that the best way to do so is to ensure that we recruit the finest pupils available and provide a wide ranging, enjoyable and first class training experience which will equip our pupils with all the skills necessary to succeed in providing high quality legal advice to the community.”

Marshall Diel & Myers Limited is also pleased to offer an annual scholarship to encourage and support Bermudian students interested in higher education in the study of law.

The award provides financial support to a maximum of $15,000 to a Bermudian student who is pursuing a law degree at an institution that will qualify the student for call to the Bermuda Bar.

The scholarship is only available to students who intend to return to Bermuda to practice law.

The deadline for the Scholarship Award is 5pm on 1st of July.

“In providing these opportunities for Bermudian students, the Firm wants to provide worthy applicants with the opportunity to achieve their goal of becoming an attorney and member of the Bermuda Bar. We are seeking to make an investment today to assist in developing tomorrow’s leaders of Bermuda’s legal community,” confirmed Kevin Taylor, Managing Director.

Applications for the Marshall Diel & Myers Limited Legal Award and the Pupillage programme can be obtained from Rachael Barritt, a director and the head of the firm’s Student Committee (rachael.barritt@law.bm) or can be downloaded from our website at www.law.bm.

The Directors of Marshall Diel & Myers Limited look forward to receiving all applications and meeting with the next generation of Bermudian lawyers.
