In a landmark celebration, Walkers commemorates four decades of unparalleled legal training through its esteemed Articled Clerk Training Programme. With an unwavering commitment to nurturing exceptional talent, Walkers proudly reflects on its legacy of shaping industry leaders through comprehensive and structured training.

Since its inception in 1983, the Walkers Articled Clerk Training Programme has been at the forefront of legal professional development, offering candidates a fully-rounded training experience. This distinctive programme immerses trainees in the core areas of legal work undertaken by the firm, providing hands-on experience, mentorship and exposure to industry-leading cases and transactions.

The journey of an articled clerk at Walkers is marked by rotation across various practice areas, working alongside associates and partners who are leading experts in their fields. Each articled clerk is formally articled to a partner of the firm who serves as a mentor and coach throughout the programme, guiding the articled clerk's growth and development.

"Over the past 40 years the Walkers Articled Clerk Training Programme has been a beacon of excellence, producing legal professionals who excel in their careers," said Peter Kendall, Partner and Head of the firm's Trainee Committee. "We are immensely proud of the impact our programme has had on the Cayman Islands' legal landscape as well as the wider community."

74 Caymanians have embarked on the programme since its inception, 10 of whom are current articled clerks in training and 64 having already been called to the bar as Cayman Islands attorneys-at-law.

As part of the celebration, Walkers is launching a captivating 3-part podcast series that will journey through the experiences of past, present and future articled clerks. Listeners can expect candid conversations, insights into legal training and inspiring stories of transformation.

The success of the Walkers Articled Clerk Training Programme is a testament to Walkers' commitment to excellence, mentorship, and educational empowerment. As Walkers marks this milestone, the firm remains steadfast in its mission to continue shaping legal talent who contribute significantly to the legal profession as well as to the communities they serve.
