ASW hosts student lunch-and-learn in UK

  • Learning lunch: Bermudian students met in London last week with members of ASW Law team

ASW Law Ltd hosted a “lunch-and-learn” seminar for Bermudian students studying in Britain.

The event took place last week at the Bermuda Government’s London office.

Students joined the Bermudian law firm’s team for a presentation and open discussion, which included an introduction to ASW and the practice of corporate law in Bermuda. Facilitators of the event were ASW’s Neil Horner, head of corporate, Kim Willey, senior counsel consultant, Waynette Hollis, consultant, and Samantha Saunders, associate.

Mr Horner said: “ASW was impressed with the calibre of law students in the UK. This event was a great way to meet Bermudian students, put faces to names and engage with them about the dynamic Bermuda legal market as well as the strong corporate practice of ASW.”

Kimberley Durrant, director and Bermuda’s UK Representative said: “This is the value of having a space in the UK where not only the Government but Bermuda industry can effectively interact with Bermudians studying and living in the UK for positive engagement.

“I am pleased that the event was a success and look forward to ASW hosting an event next year and welcome the same opportunities to other Bermuda industry participants who may wish to connect with those in the UK. A special thank you to ASW.”
