Harneys is pleased to announce that Kayla Prendergast has been awarded our 2021 legal scholarship.
Kayla was born and raised in the Cayman Islands and has always had a keen interest in the financial services industry. Whilst pursuing her law degree at the University of Sheffield, she returned to Cayman during her breaks to complete several legal internships. This experience solidified her aspiration of becoming a Cayman lawyer. Kayla is also a member of the Rotaract Club of Grand Cayman which is an organisation dedicated to making positive, lasting changes in communities around the world.
Kayla will begin her Legal Practice Course (LPC) at the University of Law in Manchester in September 2021. Upon completion of the LPC, she will be eligible to undertake articles of clerkship with the firm which will allow her to qualify as an attorney in the Cayman Islands.
Kayla commented: “I am honoured to have the opportunity to finish my studies and continue my journey towards becoming a Cayman attorney with the sponsorship by Harneys. I am eager to demonstrate everything I have to offer and I look forward to a future in the legal industry.”
Partner and Director of Harneys’ Articled Clerk Training Programme Katie Pearson commented: “Kayla has impressed us with her strong academic achievements and exhibits the qualities that we look for when choosing our scholarship recipients. We are proud to support her as she goes on to complete her LPC overseas and look forward to Kayla joining Harneys as an articled clerk upon completion of her studies”.
