Katie and Ruby were officially sworn in as Isle of Man Advocates by the Island’s First Deemster, His Honour Deemster Corlett. Ruby was sworn in on Tuesday 6 December, and Katie the following day, on Wednesday 7 December 2022.

Both trainees joined Appleby’s Advocate Training Programme in 2020 where they undertook their two-year period of Articles and Manx Bar exams. The two trainees passed the Manx Bar exams in November 2021.

Katie and Ruby will now join the Isle of Man’s leading law firm as Associates. Ruby will become a Corporate lawyer, whilst Katie will become a Litigator.

Mark Holligon, Managing Partner at Appleby Isle of Man, said: “We are all delighted and very proud to see both Ruby and Katie called to the Manx Bar. They have been valued members of the Appleby team over the past two years, getting involved in a number of deals and cases whilst working exceptionally hard for their exams. We look forward to working alongside them as they continue with their careers.”

Ruby Agate, said: “I have felt incredibly welcome and supported over the past two years as a trainee and, with Appleby’s guidance, I am delighted to have now been admitted to the Manx Bar. I hope to continue to learn and to gain further experience from the opportunities that come my way and I am very much looking forward to continuing my career with Appleby as an Associate in the Corporate team here on the Isle of Man.”

Katie Entwisle, added: “I am really proud to be called to the Manx Bar after four years of hard work and study. I would like to thank everybody at Appleby for all of their support, as well as my wonderful family and friends who have helped me to get to this point.”
