Today 25 October 2019 is World Teacher’s Day – a day to show gratitude and celebrate the people who play one of the most important roles in societies and cultures across the world.
Today is a great opportunity for everyone to recognise and appreciate teachers and the important role they play in shaping the next generation, the future of our country and the future of the world.
From early childhood to near adulthood, and often beyond, we spend a significant portion of our lives under the guidance of teachers. Many children spend more time with their teachers than at home.
Teachers become role models who shape the people we become through the values and ideas they impart on us.
Our principal solicitor, Mr Greg Martin, lectures in Criminal and Contract Law at university, as well as Alternative Dispute Resolution and Advanced Torts. Some of the values he believes in and teaches at university are diversity, tolerance, justice and professionalism.
The significance of the teacher’s role in our own personal lives and wider society and culture cannot be understated. In Australia, the last Friday of October every year is Teacher’s Day.

Martin Bullock Lawyers celebrates this Teacher’s Day by saying thank you to teachers, in Australia and beyond, for their efforts and dedication to educating, guiding and inspiring their students.
