Harneys is pleased to welcome Ceretta Harvey and Kayla Prendergast to its Articled Clerk Training Programme.
Growing up in West Bay, Ceretta has worked in both the private and public sectors before joining Harneys. In her various roles, she developed a deep appreciation and respect for the role that the law plays in everyday society pushing her to pursue a legal career herself. Ceretta commented: “I truly feel privileged to have been offered Articles here at Harneys. Having commenced my first seat, I realize it won’t be easy, but I am confident that I am surrounded and supported by some of the industry’s finest who will ensure that I am adequately equipped and prepared to successfully complete this necessary step to becoming a practising Cayman attorney.”
Kayla Prendergast likewise joins the 2022 Articled Clerk Programme. Kayla has always had an interest in business, having participated in the 2015 Cayman Finance Programme, where she received mentorship from a lawyer who encouraged her to pursue a legal career in order to refine her drafting and debating skills. Kayla’s dream is to one day become a partner and work towards training and inspiring other Caymanians in the legal profession. She was awarded the Harneys 2021 legal scholarship, which was used to complete her Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in Manchester. Kayla commented: “After receiving the scholarship from Harneys, I was very grateful to be offered Articles of Clerkship. As I start the next step of my journey to becoming a qualified lawyer, I am happy to be joining a firm where everyone is very helpful and invested in my career progression.”
Charles Moore, Partner and Director of the Articled Clerk Training Programme at Harneys commented: “We continue to expand and improve our training and development programmes, which allows us to provide Caymanians the opportunity to develop their skills in the industry. We are extremely excited to have Kayla and Ceretta join the programme as they both demonstrate the core values that are required to excel in the legal profession.”
