The Appointment of State, Territory and Federal Judges: Part 1

Part 1 will address the question: What is the work of judges, and what do the judges of the court in question do? What are the necessary qualities of a prospective appointee?

Much has been written on this topic, both by judges and academics, but it is of continuing importance, and the discussion needs to be kept up-to-date.

Criteria for the appointment of judges have been put forward in the past, for example by the Australasian Institute of Judicial Administration. See: Suggested-Criteria-for-Judicial-Appointments-AIJA-2015.pdf    

Are all of these criteria still relevant? Are they too abstract?

Date: Thursday, 7 July 2022

Time: 5.30 pm - 7.00 pm (AEST)

Location: Banco Court, Supreme Court of New South Wales, Queens Square, Sydney

Speaker:  The Hon Tom Bathurst AC QC, formerly Chief Justice of New South Wales

Speaker: the Hon Walter Sofronoff QC, formerly President of The Court of Appeal, Supreme Court of Queensland

Speaker The Hon Justice Jenny Blokland - judge of the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory and President of the Australasian Institute of Judicial Administration (AIJA). Her Honour was the Chief Magistrate of the Northern Territory from 2006 to 2010
