Law students get financial backing from Marshall Diel & Myers
Three Bermudian students have received legal education awards from law firm Marshall Diel & Myers Limited.
Zuri Harrison, Jonathan Jervis and Zamauri Hardtman are recipients of the awards this year, with Ms Harrison receiving a $10,000 scholarship, Mr Jervis receiving a $5,000 bursary and Mr Hardtman receiving a $2,500 bursary.
Ms Harrison is a recent graduate of Somersfield Academy, where she received her IB diploma. She will be attending the University of Exeter in September to begin her legal studies.
She said: “I aspire to practise family law to give back to Bermuda in a meaningful way. I believe that helping others, standing up for justice, living with integrity and promoting fairness and equity can be achieved through the exercise of law.”
Mr Jervis obtained a bachelor’s in social wwork and a master’s in social work from Andrews University in Michigan and worked at the Bermuda Hospitals Board’s Child and Adolescent Services for seven years, gaining significant experience as a mental health professional and advocate before deciding to pivot and build on his qualifications as a legal professional and advocate.
In October 2022, he completed the Post Graduate Diploma in Law through the University of Law with commendation. He is enrolled in the Legal Practice Course and master’s in law at the University of Law Leeds with expected completion in the fall of 2023.
Mr Hardtman is a student at the University of Buckingham. He plans to return to Bermuda after the completion of his studies for his pupillage where he hopes to contribute to the legal landscape and further develop his expertise.
Adam Richards, managing director, Marshall, Diel & Myers Limited, said: “We are delighted to have awarded scholarships and bursaries to three Bermudian students who will become our future lawyers. At Marshall, Diel & Myers, we pride ourselves on training the next generation of Bermuda’s legal minds. We wish Zuri, Jonathan and Zamauri all the best with their studies.”
