As one of Bermuda’s leading local law firms, Marshall Diel & Myers Limited (“MDM”) strongly believes in the importance of supporting young Bermudians, particularly those who aspire to a career in the legal profession. MDM is committed to developing the future of the Bar in Bermuda and, to further that aim, offers an annual scholarship award, pupillages, and a number of summer placement positions.
“It’s very important to all of us at Marshall Diel & Myers that we do all we can to assist aspiring attorneys,” says Adam Richards, Managing Director of MDM. “We also recognize that the company’s continued success depends on our employees’ skills, and their commitment to providing excellent service to our clients. We believe that one of the optimum ways to ensure that those high levels of service continue is to directly invest, train and develop our future lawyers.”
MDM fosters and maintains an open, respectful, inclusive and team-oriented workplace where students are recognized and treated as valued professionals. MDM seeks to support outstanding students who have the potential to continue with the firm as associates.
The student experience at MDM is designed to be rewarding and positive, as well as challenging. Whether as a pupil or on a summer placement, students can expect to be fully immersed in the day-to-day lives of this busy litigation firm. The program is tailored to ensure that the student receives the highest possible standards of training, support and exposure, not only to enhance their learning experience but to provide a clear insight into their prospective future career at the Bar.
The Principal Scholarship Award provides financial support up to a maximum $15,000 to a Bermudian student with outstanding scholastic achievement, who is pursuing legal studies at an institution that will qualify the student for call to the Bermuda Bar. The scholarship is available only to Bermudians who intend to return to Bermuda to practice law. MDM seeks candidates, who demonstrate initiative, effective communication skills, leadership capability, willingness to be involved in the community, and the ability to work well as part of a team.
Applications for all student positions are to be made on the relevant forms which can be downloaded from the website at www.law.bm.
