Conyers Dill and Pearman is donating more than $200,000 to support Bermudian students with legal education.

The firm has chosen eight students as recipients of its 2018 Legal Awards and is also providing renewed funding for some past recipients.

Conyers has donated more than $1 million to legal education over the past five years.

The Conyers Legal Award Recipients 2018 are: Mahogany Bean, Ashley Bento, Joshua DeAllie, Zantae Dill, Ashley Fubler, Candace Paynter, Amber Wilson and Kaisha Wilson.

The recipients are at a number of different stages of their studies, ranging from first year undergraduates to those completing their postgraduate diploma in legal practice.

“Conyers is pleased to support these committed young people as they work towards their legal qualifications,” said Helen Cooper, director, who chaired the selection committee.

“We congratulate all the recipients of our Legal Awards on their achievements to date and the dedication they have shown to achieving their goals.”

Conyers is one of Bermuda’s largest employers, with more than 260 employees on the island, 89 per cent of whom are Bermudian.

Lisa Spencer-Arscott, global head of human resources, said: “We have a strong sense of responsibility and are passionate about encouraging the next generation of lawyers.

“We are always willing to talk with those who are interested in pursuing a career in the legal profession, so students should not hesitate to get in touch with us.”
