The Campbells Articled Clerk Programme offers qualifying Caymanians the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge by working with experienced attorneys whilst participating in a leading professional programme. Our programme has been designed to stimulate and challenge the successful candidates to become great lawyers.

At Campbells each Articled Clerk will be assigned a partner mentor and an associate mentor for each rotation, providing them with guidance and overseeing their development. They will also receive regular feedback from their mentors throughout the programme. We understand that by investing in the next generation we are also investing in our future leaders who will be a great asset to the Firm in years to come.

Seat Rotation

Articled Clerks are expected to complete four “seats” in different practice areas with each rotation being three to six months in duration. The successful candidate will be expected to complete a minimum of one corporate and one litigation focused rotation.

Mentoring

During each seat, the articling clerk is assigned a mentor or principal whose role it is to ensure that the articling clerk receives relevant work experience. The mentor will ensure that the successful articling clerk will receive ongoing feedback on their work.
