First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Bermudian student Seon Tatem has been named recipient of the 2021 Legal Scholarship awarded by law firm MJM Limited.

The firm said Mr Tatem was awarded the scholarship to a value of $10,000 to assist with his legal studies.

The annual scholarship is granted to an outstanding Bermudian or Permanent Resident Certificate holder who aspires to enter the field of law and is committed to return to Bermuda to practice, MJM said.

The award may be renewed annually for up to three years.

The firm also awarded a $5,000 bursary to Bermudian student Briana Medeiros.

MJM said Mr Tatem will be entering his freshman year of studies for an LLB Law at the University of Buckingham in the United Kingdom.

He graduated from the Berkeley Institute in 2019 and was a recent Rotary exchange student in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The firm said Ms Medeiros is a junior at the University of Toronto, where she is studying for double majors – a BHSc in psychology and HBA in criminology.

Upon graduation from U of T, the firm said Ms Medeiros plans to complete her legal training in the United Kingdom. She is a 2019 Warwick Academy graduate.

Jennifer Haworth, director and head of the dispute resolution team at MJM Limited, said: “We really enjoyed meeting with the students.

“Seon demonstrated a resilience and thoughtfulness, in addition to his academic excellence, all of which will stand him in great stead as he heads off to law school.

“Briana impressed the committee with her drive and passion for the law together with her strong academics.

“We are delighted to support both of these talented Bermudian students in their pursuit of their legal careers.”

MJM Limited specialises in corporate law, commercial litigation, trusts and estates, civil litigation and employment law. The current directors of the firm are Denis de Frias, Hil de Frias, Fozeia Rana-Fahy, Ms Haworth and Jeremy Leese.
