Internship Programme – Cayman Islands
Our Cayman Internship programme is a four-week placement over the June/July/August holiday period. It consists of specific Legal or Business Services training and development by our experienced, qualified and collaborative professionals to assist you with your undergraduate or postgraduate education.
Solid, competitive academics are required for acceptance onto our Summer Internship but we’re not just looking for grades. We want to hear from people who stand out for their ability to work in teams, with a positive approach to problem solving and clear communication skills.
Applications for our Internship programme are invited from January to April each year. Those eligible to apply are:
- A level students
- University students (undergraduate)
- Truman Bodden Law School students
- Postgraduate students
We've always had strong applicants, but we ensure that every applicant is given equal opportunity to gain one of our limited number of placements.
If your application stands out, the next stage is an interview. This will normally be conducted by one of our senior lawyers and a representative from the HR team.
If you want to apply for a Scholarship with Ogier, you must first secure an internship. Your performance on the Internship programme is assessed throughout the four week period, to allow us to make a decision as to whether or not to consider you for a Scholarship.
Scholarships have been awarded for 2018 and our internship programme is now fully subscribed. The application process will reopen in January 2019.
Scholarship – Cayman Islands
An Ogier Scholarship is for the duration of an individual's degree and, depending on performance, may also cover LPC/BPTC/PPC studies. The Scholarship consists of:
- Financial support payable in instalments per semester
- Invitations to relevant training events organised in Cayman (if studying locally)
- Careers advice from partners and other lawyers
- Ongoing support and mentoring from our Associate and HR team
Students are usually considered for the awarding of a Scholarship after successful completion of an Internship in the Ogier Cayman office, as described above. If you are selected at the end of the Internship, we will issue a Scholarship offer which is conditional upon you achieving admission into the Cayman Islands Law School (or UK equivalent) and minimum grades.
Scholarship funds will not be paid if you take a year out at any time during your studies, for the duration of the time out. During your scholarship you'll continue to participate in our Internship programme annually, gaining valuable experience along the way.
For the Scholarship to continue to be paid each semester, students must maintain a minimum 2:1 average.
For the Scholarship to be considered for continuation through to LPC/BPTC/PPC studies, students must have achieved a 2.1 or higher final result in their degree course.
Your commitment to us it to accept any offer to join our Articled Clerk Programme at the end of your studies.
Our Internship and Scholarship programmes offer excellent opportunities to talented students looking to get the best possible start to their legal careers. Whilst we do not have a long list of conditions that must be followed, we do ask that if a Scholarship is accepted from us then no other scholarship is accepted from any other firm/organisation. We also expect you to perform to the best of your abilities during your internship. That way, both you and Ogier will gain the most from this long-term relationship.
