Conyers scholarship winners announced

Conyers Dill & Pearman announced yesterday its 2013 legal scholarship and bursary recipients, who have been recognised for their academic achievement and commitment to pursuing a career in the field of law.

Catherine Outerbridge, 22, received the Conyers Dill & Pearman Legal Scholarship Award. Valued at $30,000 per year for up to three years, the award is presented to a well-deserving law student after a highly competitive selection process, which includes a written application and intensive interviews.

Ms Outerbridge impressed the Scholarship Committee with her high level of academic achievement and a strong sense of integrity in both her civil and personal pursuits, which made her an excellent choice for Conyers' Legal Scholarship Award. She recently graduated cum laude from Davidson College in North Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and a minor in Philosophy, and has accepted a placement with Kaplan Law School in London, UK to study in the Graduate Diploma in Law programme.

She has already immersed herself in the legal community, joining Conyers as a work shadow student in 2012 and recently participating in the firm's summer law student programme, where she worked in the Corporate department.

In addition, Conyers awarded bursaries to Tomas Amaral, 17, pursuing his LLB at the University of Kent; Marcus Bean, 18, also pursuing his LLB at the University of Kent; Hayley Joy, 22, pursuing her LPC at BPP Law School London; Shannon Cann, 20, pursuing her LPC/LLM at the University of Law at Bristol; and Cathryn Minors, 20, pursuing her LPC/LLM at the University of Law at Bristol.

“On behalf of the firm's Legal Scholarship Committee, I would like to congratulate all of our well-deserving award winners,” said Chris Garrod, Director in Conyers' Bermuda office. “Committed to their studies and passionate about law, these students have set an excellent foundation for their future legal careers, and we wish them all the best in their studies,” he said.
