Walkers is delighted to announce that its Legal Internship Programme ran for three weeks, from 17 July to 4 August.  Hosting 10 students this summer, the programme was designed to provide these aspiring legal professionals with an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a leading global law firm.

Legal interns were paired with experienced lawyers and participated in a variety of activities including legal research, drafting documents, client meetings and mentoring sessions. The Legal Internship Programme is part of Walkers' ongoing commitment to championing local talent within the legal industry.

"At Walkers, we believe we have a responsibility to nurture the future of the legal industry and create opportunities for motivated individuals to develop their careers," said David Collins, partner and Chair of the Trainee Committee." Our Legal Internship Programme provides a platform for talented individuals to gain practical experience while working alongside our experienced legal professionals. We are confident that this programme will enhance participants' career prospects and create a pipeline for future talent both on island and at Walkers."

"Our programme is designed to give legal interns' first-hand experience of the typical day to day responsibilities of being a lawyer," said Jordana Clarke, Head of Learning and Development. "This is an opportunity for the legal interns to gain insight and understanding of what it is like to be a Cayman Islands lawyer whilst also developing commercial awareness and other skills that will be invaluable throughout their careers."
