River Oaks is part of the Dorchester County District Two School system and is located in North Charleston, SC. Mr. Guthrie spoke to two different classes of eighth graders about the his career and experiences as a lawyer.

The students had many questions that ranged from how long one has to stay in school to become a lawyer, is all of that school worth it, how much does an attorney typically get paid, what happens if there is a client you do not want to represent, and what does a lawyer do after hours. The students in both classes that Mr. Guthrie participated in the speech and discussion for the full class period and were continuing to ask question even as the bell rang for them to move to their next class.
