Harneys awards young Caymanian with legal scholarship

Harneys is pleased to announce that Diana DeMercado has been selected as the recipient of Harneys’ three year scholarship to complete her Bachelor of Laws at the Truman Bodden Law School in Grand Cayman.

Diana DeMercado is from Cayman Brac and expressed her excitement for winning the scholarship stating “I am honoured to be selected as the legal scholarship recipient, I know how competitive the market is and coming from such a small island as the Brac, I am extremely grateful that they saw something in me and look forward to a bright future with the firm.”
 
The scholarship will cover the full length of the recipient’s Bachelors and comes with a paid professional experience during their school breaks as an intern at Harneys. During the months of July and August, Diana participated in her first round of the internship programme where she worked alongside the Dispute & Resolution practice group mentored by Mark Burrows, Associate. Once Diana has qualified with her postgraduate qualification she will be eligible to undertake articles of clerkship with the firm, which once complete will allow her to qualify as an attorney in Cayman.
 
Marco Martins, Managing Partner at Harneys said “Harneys continues to be committed to investing in the local community and we are delighted Diana has chosen to pursue a degree in Law and look forward to helping her achieve this goal.”
