On 30 March 2017, the Bermuda Bar Association announced that a new group had been established for the benefit of the junior members of the Bermuda legal profession, to be called the Bermuda Young Lawyers Group (“BYLG”).
The objectives of the BYLG are to provide a platform for networking and continued professional and educational development amongst junior members of the Bermuda Bar.
The BYLG will aim to strengthen the collegiate nature of the Bermuda Bar and to provide additional support for younger members of Bermuda’s legal profession.
The BYLG is led by David Amaro, Kimberley D. Caines, Maryssa Gabriel, Kyle Masters, Edward Rance, Lovette Tannock, Matthew Watson and Jevon Williams.
Membership in the BYLG is apparently open to lawyers and registered associates practicing in Bermuda who are either 36 years old or younger or 10 years’ qualified to practice or less, as well as for pupils who have completed six months’ training in the course of lawful pupillage.
Membership is automatic for all those who satisfy such criteria.
The BYLG will host its first networking social on Thursday, April 6 from 5:30 pm at Café TEN (10 Dundonald St, Hamilton HM 12).
