Opening legal doors

Caymanian lawyer Gavin Dixon says he would like to see more opportunities for his fellow countrymen in his chosen profession.

Mr Dixon is the latest Caymanian to be called to the bar. He told Cayman 27 he would like to see more locals be given a chance to join law firs here and climb the ladder.

During an interview with Cayman 27 Mr Dixon said, “If you strive to get a degree in anything, the last thing you want to be told its that it’s not to the standard they desire.” He says he understands that employers can just simply drop their standards. In fact he said he isn’t asking that from them instead he wants to see qualified Caymanians be given a fair chance. He said,”At the end of the day an employer wants to be able to market themselves and you don’t want to take that away from them. But in general I think if a Caymanian is able and puts themselves forward and qualifies then they should have those opportunities.”

George Town MLA Winston Connolly has openly supported the implementation of regulation that would enable more Caymanians to be come lawyers.
