Eron Hill Set To Begin Legal Studies In England

September 22, 2015

Eron bernews photoOne of Bermuda’s brightest young legal minds is departing for the United Kingdom to further his legal education at Durham University, with Eron Hill set to begin his studies next month.

Durham University is located in North Eastern England, on the border of Scotland, and its Law Program is third ranked behind Oxford and Cambridge University.

Mr. Hill was formerly employed at Christopher’s Barristers & Attorneys, under the tutelage of Elizabeth Christopher and Saul Dismont before moving onto Compass Law Chambers under the tutelage of Mr. Charles Richardson.

Mr. Hill has also had the unique opportunity to work alongside the best legal minds this country has to offer in Victoria Pearman, Marc Daniels, Larry Mussenden, Craig Attridge, Susan Mulligan, and Vaughan Caines to name a few.

Most recently, Mr. Hill worked alongside UK Barrister and Attorney Courtenay Griffiths QC on a high profile murder case, with the noted QC saying: “Eron is a gem and will go far in this profession.”

Marc Daniels of Marc Geoffrey Barristers & Attorneys said, “Mr. Hill possesses a wisdom and poise that inspired me to become a better counsel. I am particularly impressed with Mr. Hill’s critical thinking skills. He is not only intelligent, but humble, which makes him even more special”

The budding lawyer and advocate for the youth voice announced earlier this summer his plans to write a book on the life of Bermudian Barrister, Attorney, and politician Julian Hall.

Mr. Hill indicates that although his experience with his mentors in the field has been that of a criminal and civil law background he will also explore the areas of international arbitration, insurance, and tax law.

Speaking on his plans, Mr Hill said: “ I am looking forward to commencing my studies at this illustrious institution. I am determined and eager to ascertain my qualifications so that I can return home and continue to be a valuable asset to the community.

“I have so many people to thank for where I am today and where I am headed. I know that it’s not always easy for them to deal with “Munchkin” as they frequently refer to me; and yet they show nothing but love and patience time and time again.

“We all have one or more heroes. I consider myself blessed because I actually get to work with, laugh with, build with, and call them my family. My gratitude for their contributions to my future success as a barrister, and more important as a man is immeasurable. I am forever grateful!”

    Well done young man and all the best in your studies and may you have continued success. Its refreshing to read of good news pertaining to our young black males, cause its sickening hearing the bad news all the time.

    • @ Bermy Realist: According to Lungi Ray, “Yah tellin’ me.”
      I can only pray he’ll become an inspiration to others so that they too may capture the opportunity when it’s placed in front of them.

    Ascertain qualifications?

    • serengeti says:

      Yep, I saw that as well.
      That’s what happens when you try to use big words.

    • Seeking Justice says:

      Yes, ascertain.

      I see nothing wrong with the use of this word, as presumably he meant it in it’s less common usage. Google and you might discover what I mean.

    I, too, wish Mr Hill well in his studies and future endeavours. Now, some advice from a Bermudian who took a similar path not too long ago:

    1. Be humble. In this profession, the wisest are those who admit the quickest what they don’t know; the most ignorant are usually those most assured of themselves.
    2. Work hard. You will need to spend many long hours in the company of books. There is no substitute for this.
    3. Don’t forget Bermuda, but don’t hurry back. It’s gratifying to hear that you intend to return home after your studies, but consider gaining a few years of work/life experience abroad before resettling here. Many of us find that it makes all the difference.

    Good luck!

    Congratulations to you Eron! I wish you all the best, and I know that you will continue to do well. You have an excellent future ahead of you, so continue to be encouraged. Many in the community are behind you, and will continue to follow you as you chart your course.

    To ‘safe’ and ‘serengeti’…Really? Is that the best you can do? It’s an article about a young man who has done well, and is on his way to doing and becoming more, and the best you can do is criticize that he used a word erroneously? It’s not an article about him stealing, lying, cheating, sitting on the wall doing nothing, or even worse, doing something that he shouldn’t. To you, and all of those that ‘liked’ your comments, while your display actually tells readers so much about you and your thinking, know that it is this very type of thinking that will encourage a young man like this even more. Freddie Wade once said that regardless of how well ‘certain people’ do, there will always be some other *certain people* who will have a problem with the person, or the process. Well, *certain people* prove themselves every time. Congratulations.

    Be encouraged Eron!
