Students awarded law scholarship and bursary
Law student William Finnerty has been awarded a $15,000 scholarship from Marshall Diel & Myers to continue his studies.
The law firm has also presented fellow law student Taylor Braithwaite with a $7,500 bursary for his quest to earn his graduate diploma in law.
Adam Richards, a director at Marshall Diel and Myers Ltd, said: “Over the past year, they have both achieved fantastic results in their legal studies. In addition, William and Taylor have both undertaken work placements with us this year and have impressed us significantly.
“They have bright futures ahead of them as lawyers and we are delighted to be assisting them in achieving their career goals.
“Although the standard of applications for scholarships was very high this year, the committee determined that both students fully justified being awarded financial assistance again this year and decided to continue our support for these exceptional young men.”
Mr Finnerty, a former Saltus Head Boy, has already completed the first year of his LLB law degree at Exeter University, and hopes to return to Bermuda to practice once he has finished his studies.
He said: “I am beyond thankful to Marshall Diel & Myers for selecting me as the successful candidate for this award and for continuously supporting the law students of Bermuda in their professional development.
“I look forward to once again representing the distinction of this award to the greatest extent.”
Meanwhile, Mr Braithwaite has already earned a degree in business and law from the University of West England, and intends to return to Bristol to attend the University of Law and undertake a legal practice course before returning to Bermuda.
