“A warm congratulations to our 2022 Legal Awards recipients,” said Sophia Greaves, director, who chaired the selection committee. “We are delighted to support these young Bermudians with their legal studies and look forward to celebrating their future achievements.”

The firm’s statement added: “Conyers is passionate about supporting the future generation of lawyers in Bermuda. We are proud of our longstanding commitment to growing legal talent in the community and contributing to the personal and professional development of law students.

“Since its inception more than 30 years ago, the Legal Education Awards have donated over $2 million to students in Bermuda who are planning to embark on a career in law.

“In addition to the Legal Education Awards, the firm offers an unmatched suite of comprehensive student programmes in Bermuda designed to foster professional development.

“Hands-on learning opportunities include the Summer Law and Pupillage programmes, in which participants are mentored by Conyers’ lawyers, work on real client projects and participate in daily life at the firm.

“Their gap-year internship programme allows recent graduates from Bermuda senior schools, or those already enrolled in an undergraduate or master’s programme, to gain real-world experience working in different areas of the firm. Other initiatives include their ongoing networking and open-house events where students can explore what it means to pursue a path in law.”
