Andrew Wright visits Woodville High School to speak to Year 12 Law Studies class

Andrew Wright | Boylan Lawyers

On Wednesday the 24th of February 2021, my good friend Andrew Wright, Partner in Adelaide law firm Boylan Lawyers, one of the largest independent legal practices in South Australia, visited the Woodville High School Year 12 Law Studies class as a guest speaker to talk about his experiences and responsibilities as a lawyer. In addition, he took questions from the students which varied greatly on many interesting topics that Andrew was more than happy to chat about.

Topics covered included; Andrew’s pathway to becoming a lawyer/barrister and partner in a successful law firm, his experiences across many fields including; criminal disputes, personal injury, workers compensation, industrial relations and civil law more generally. And finally, his journey as a successful business owner was also discussed.

Andrew was incredibly impressed with the interesting and thoughtful questions put to him by the class. The students were both fascinated and moved by the inspirational advice and stories that Andrew was able to share with us about his time in the field of law.

Hopefully, Andrew’s visit has inspired a few or perhaps many members of my class to pursue a career in law and or the State/Federal Parliaments.

The students and I are grateful to Andrew for taking time out of his busy schedule to catch up with us!
