Walkers has announced the admission of Lloyd Barker and Alexandra Franklin, both of whom were called to the Cayman Islands Bar on Friday 26 June after completing their legal training with the firm.
The admissions were the first to be heard in the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands since the Government enforced social distancing protocols in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Barker was a recipient of the 2016 Walkers Legal Scholarship. The following year, he undertook the Graduate Diploma in Law at the University of Law, Manchester and was awarded a Commendation. By 2018, Lloyd had completed the joint LPC/LLM in Professional Legal Practice course with Distinction, also at the University of Law.
He is a 2011 graduate of Wesleyan Christian Academy and was class valedictorian. In 2012, he founded the Pursuit of Excellence – the Lloyd Barker Foundation, which aims to empower young people from an academic, social and developmental perspective. Barker was articled to Shelley White, a partner in the Insolvency & Dispute Resolution and Trust Disputes groups.
“The Walkers team has displayed continued interest, enthusiasm and support in my development, and has played an incredible role in ensuring I received quality academic and professional legal training,” Barker said.
