HSM Continues to Offer Legal Internship Programme

The HSM Group is proud to once again offer a legal internship for the 2019/20 academic year in partnership with the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC).

Eleven interns have been recruited from the CIFEC Career Fair that was held in September 2019. The team at HSM has welcomed: Joshua Bent, Nahomy Bonilla-Zelaya, Derique Powery, Sheyla Scott, Rickhams Zuniga, Aaliyah Morris, Toshonna Kelly, Zara Hydes, Chrissy Stewart-Brown, Nyanza Henry and Amaya Jackson.

Since HSM is a full-service law firm, these students are able to gain experiences across a wide-range of practices including immigration, debt collection, intellectual property and even areas outside of law, such as finance.

Natasha Whitelocke coordinates the CIFEC Internship Programme on behalf of HSM and is also the Head IP Paralegal. Whitelocke along with HSM’s Managing Partner, Huw Moses, carefully select and pair an intern with a lawyer or expert at HSM. These personnel will monitor the student’s work and mentor their professionalism.

As part of the CIFEC curriculum, the internship runs until April 2019 and each student attends work twice a week during school hours. When the programme ends, HSM offers a select amount of summer jobs that will provide some students a deeper look into the working world. HSM currently employs six CIFEC graduates fulltime.

“We remain committed and passionate about developing Cayman’s next generation of professionals,” shares HSM Managing Partner, Huw Moses OBE. “Whether they become lawyers or not, our team will also teach them the basic skills needed to excel in any industry they choose.”

HSM has worked with the CIFEC progamme since the firm’s inception in 2012.
