On this episode of The Cayman Lawyer, Litigation and Insolvency partner and director of the Harneys articled clerk programme, Katie Pearson is joined by associates and recent articled clerk graduates Natasja Levy and Moesha Ramsay-Howell as they discuss starting their legal careers, and their experience with the articled clerk programme.
“Attitude is king”. A willingness to learn, the ability to take feedback constructively and an open mind are invaluable attributes for any articled clerk.
The Covid-19 pandemic caused unexpected disruption to both Moesha and Natasja’s articles but through good communication, both were able to continue training and learning through the period that the Cayman Islands were in lockdown.
Both Moesha and Natasja benefited from undertaking the judicial clerkship, offered by the Cayman Islands judiciary in conjunction with the Cayman Islands Legal Practitioners Association, which is a fantastic opportunity for articled clerks to obtain a different perspective on the legal profession in the Cayman Islands.
