Global Pathways: Law and Finance

Posted on: 10th Jan 2022

Year 12 scholarship students kicked off the new year with an insightful session with La Retraite alumni Tanya Scantlbury, to inspire and improve their knowledge of global careers and pathways.

In 2005, Tanya was Called to the Bar of England and Wales and began her professional career as an In-House Advocate and Deputy Team Leader for a national firm of solicitors in the United Kingdom. In 2010, she was Called to the Bar of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court - British Virgin Islands (“BVI”) and one year later, relocated to the BVI as a civil and commercial litigator, before moving in house as Senior Legal Counsel for an international trust company where she advised on a vast range of contentious and non-contentious multi-jurisdictional trust and corporate matters. More recently, Tanya joined Clermont as the Managing Director of the BVI office. In addition to her legal qualifications, she also holds TEP designation from the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners and is a Notary Public and Commissioner for Oaths in the BVI.

The session provided an excellent opportunity for students to network, ask questions about overcoming adversity, rejection and staying determined, and expand their knowledge of law careers.

“Yesterday we had a talk with Tanya Scantlebury. The talk was extremely informative and intriguing. Throughout the talk, Tanya spoke about her career journey encouraging us that if we put our mind to something and have a plan, we can achieve it. I was motivated by her emphasis on rejections not being seen as setbacks and inspired by her achievements. She gave us an insight into studying and working abroad demonstrating that the world truly is our oyster. This talk has pushed me to think more outside the box and was very heartening coming from a La Retraite alumni student”. Klotilda, Year 12 student
