Mourant Ozannes Cayman office welcomed five high school interns this summer.
The students gained hands-on work experience in the firm’s core legal practice areas of funds, finance and commercial litigation, and also spent time with the corporate services, compliance and accounts departments giving them a comprehensive insight into the operation of a Cayman law firm.
The five interns are high school graduates Shannon Liebert (John Gray High School) and Jaryd Bodden (St. Ignatius High School), both of whom are about to begin their associate degree studies at University College Cayman Islands; A-Level pupils Rashana Singh and Alicia Thompson (Cayman Prep & High School); and Alejandro Chisholm, who attends high school in Tampa, Florida. Each of the interns has just completed several weeks at Mourant Ozannes offices during July and August.
Managing Partner and head of the Cayman office Neal Lomax said, “Mourant Ozannes continues its commitment to the development and progression of Caymanians who have the aptitude to achieve in the field of law.
“Our intern programme helps us to identify promising individuals who may be offered the opportunity to progress to our scholarship and articled clerk training programmes. We are pleased to be able to provide this experience to several diligent students each year.”
