Jeremy has practised as a Solicitor continuously since his admission in 1977. Currently, Jeremy is one of three principals of Glass Goodwin, which practises almost exclusively in the area of wills and estates, including will drafting and estate planning, estate administration and estate-related disputes. He became an accredited specialist in that area in 1995. Jeremy served on the Law Society Elder Law and Succession Committee from 1999 to 2011, the Specialist Accreditation Board Wills & Estates Law Advisory Committee from 1999 to 2010 and the Specialist Accreditation Board itself from 2009 to 2017.
Jeremy has been married for 40 years and has three children (none of whom are lawyers) and two (soon to be three) grandchildren. Jeremy’s sporting activities have evolved from rugby (see below) to squash and now to golf, as more befits his age, fitness and mobility.
In the heady days of 1971, the new UNSW Law School (small classes in “the huts” or under a tree, friendly and approachable lecturers) was a whole different world from the traditional large lecture theatre model. Learning by reading, analysing and discussing, rather than memorising passages from a text book, were most valuable lessons to be carried forward into practice post graduation. Plus, despite being a young and small (in number) student body, we made it to the final of the inter-faculty rugby competition (sadly, coming second to Arts).
