HSM Welcomes 15 Students to 2022/23 Internship Programme

The HSM Group is proud to once again offer a legal internship for the 2022/23 academic year in partnership with the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC).

The team at HSM has welcomed 15 interns: Tarek Figueroa, Briana Rodriquez, Jamari Samuda, Jelissa Bush, Elijah Lawrence, Jamila Andrade, Nathaniel Scott, Joel Watler, Antjuan Lawrence, Janely Reeves, Mahalia Archer, Phyliss Brown, Kayleigh Bush, Jenae Whittaker and Courtney Reid.

HSM is a full-service law firm and corporate services provider, which offers students the ability to gain experiences across a wide-range of practices including immigration, debt collection, intellectual property, corporate services and even areas outside of law, such as finance and marketing.

These students were interviewed at the CIFEC Careers Fair on 23 September 2022. HSM participated at this fair with a booth, which gave students an opportunity to learn about HSM as well as make a formal application.

Each of these students have been carefully paired with a lawyer or expert at HSM. These personnel will monitor the student’s work and provide mentoring.

While some students are still figuring out what they want to do with their career, CIFEC student Jamila Andrade asipires to become a lawyer and shares, “I am grateful for this experience and was over the moon when I found out I got a placement. I am learning a lot so far.”

As part of the CIFEC curriculum, the internship runs from October 2022 until April 2023 and each student attends work twice a week during school hours. When the programme ends, there may be opportunities for some students to attain a summer work placement at HSM.

HSM Managing Partner, Huw Moses OBE shares: “We look forward to this programme each year and are impressed by this year’s group of students. They are eager to learn and contribute. We are proud to be a part of their career foundation.”

HSM has supported the CIFEC Internship Programme since 2012 and also offers sponsorship opportunities for further education. HSM employs several CIFEC graduates fulltime.
