Like father like son

12 December 2012

You'll be forgiven the cliché when you say that law runs in the blood of the Hutchison family.

When David Hutchison graduates with his LLB on 18 December, he'll be joining an impressive list of law graduates from his immediate family. His elder brother, Andrew, is a senior lecturer in the Department of Commercial Law; his father, Professor Dale Hutchison, is a part-time lecturer in the Department of Private Law; and his grandfather was a magistrate.

At the graduation, Hutchison senior will hood a family member for the eighth (and probably last) time; the youngest son is planning to practise law, and the father will retire in a few years' time.

"We are excited about David's graduation," says Hutchison senior. "But it marks the end of the road for me."
