A Sunshine lawyer hopes a brush with the law will help put senior students at Sunshine Secondary College on the path to a career in the legal services industry.
Slater and Gordon personal injury lawyer Craig Lynch will visit the school on Tuesday (May 14) as part of National Law Week, running May 13-19.
“A lot of people have a lot of pre-conceived ideas about what life must be like in a law firm so hopefully I will be able to dispel some myths and give anyone who might be considering a law career a few insights into what they can expect,” Mr Lynch said.
Mr Lynch will tell year 11 and 12 legal studies students about the many and varied options open to anyone considering a life in the law.
“A career in the law doesn’t necessarily mean going off and studying law to become a barrister or solicitor, there are opportunities at a variety of levels, whether it’s as a legal clerk, legal assistant or in IT or marketing,” he said.
“I have found it to be an extremely rewarding profession and I’m looking forward to hopefully helping steer some members of the next generation down a similar path.”
