Marshall Diel & Myers Limited is committed to developing the future of the Bar in Bermuda by offering annual pupillages to suitably qualified applicants. We welcome applications for pupillage from candidates who are personable, assured and have the ability to instill confidence in our clients. They will be focused, intelligent and possess a good academic record. Pupils should demonstrate a strong desire to pursue a legal career and have a particular interest in the areas of law in which Marshall Diel & Myers Limited specialize.
Marshall Diel & Myers Limited wish to continue to provide the highest level of professional and effective service to our clients. We believe that the best way to do so is to ensure that we recruit the finest pupils available and provide a wide ranging, enjoyable and first class training experience which will equip our pupils with all the skills necessary to succeed in providing high quality legal advice to the clients of Marshall Diel & Myers Limited.
We consider applicants for pupillage positions effective September of each year. Pupils will be given the opportunity to experience all practice areas of Marshall Diel & Myers Limited during their training. Following the successful completion of one year, pupils will be called to the Bermuda Bar. Thereafter, a pupil will become an Associate of the firm but will continue to be supervised for a further year. Marshall Diel & Myers Limited is committed to offering full-time permanent positions on the completion of a successful pupillage and offers excellent and competitive starting salaries.
