Mary Ward, a partner in the corporate team, said: "I am so pleased Ice'ces has been awarded the Investing in People scholarship. She is an exceptionally motivated student who stood out during the interviews for her tenacity and drive.

“Supporting students on their journey to becoming lawyers is important to the Carey Olsen partnership here in Bermuda and we're delighted another promising young Bermudian will be supported through this programme."

Ms Jackson said: "I am thrilled to be selected as the winner of this year's scholarship award. I'd like to express my sincere gratitude to the firm for making the scholarship possible and the financial support that will allow me to focus on my studies and complete my law degree in the UK.
