HSM Group welcomed the largest cohort of students to its legal internship program so far. A total of 16 placements are part of the 2018/19 academic year internship in partnership with the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC).
The students were recruited at the CIFEC Career Fair that took place in September. As part of the CIFEC curriculum, each student attends work twice a week during school hours.
HSM’s program begins this month and runs until April 2019. The students have been paired with a mentor and will gain experience in areas such as immigration, corporate services, debt collection, intellectual property, and finance and marketing.
Joining the team are: Kymani Rose, Jada Dixon, Iesha McIntosh, Paula Brown, Oneila Ewers, Shante Ramoon, Jordyn Thompson, Amelia Lamie, Abigail Campbell, Shaquana Welcome, Chadrick Thomas, Shantel Miller, Yanina Montero, Nia Carter, Izarah Brown and Chelsea Frederick.
Upon completion of this program, some students may have the opportunity to return to HSM for a summer placement during normal office hours. If a student has proven a match for an open position with the company, they may be offered a full-time job. HSM currently employs six CIFEC graduates full-time.
“We are passionate about sharing our expertise to Cayman’s next generation of leaders and are proud to be able to offer more opportunities this year,” said HSM Managing Partner Huw Moses. “It is inspiring for us to watch these students learn and grow professionally.”
HSM has worked with the CIFEC program since its inception in 2012.
