Azri graduated with a First Class Honours law degree from the National University of Singapore. Post-graduation, he joined the Singapore Legal Service and served as a Deputy Public Prosecutor, State Counsel, and Assistant Director of Legal Aid (Ministry of Law). He has significant court experience at both trial and appellate level - having acted in a broad spectrum of matters ranging from criminal prosecutions, civil claims, probate, and highly contentious family disputes.
Azri has also rendered legal advice to ministries and other government agencies on various issues, including the legality of executive decisions, draft responses to parliamentary questions, statutory powers, and regulatory frameworks. He was called to the bar in 2018 whilst working at a boutique law firm focusing on constitutional law and public-interest litigation. In the same year, he concurrently taught the Part A Bar Course.
Azri firmly believes that the future belongs to 'deep generalists' - individuals who are flexible enough to fuse in-depth specialist knowledge with a broad understanding of connected disciplines and the world generally.
