President welcomes appointment of Justice Virginia Bell to the High Court
On behalf of theï¿½Bar Association, President Anna Katzmann SC has warmly welcomed the announcement that Justice Virginia Bell is to be appointed to the High Court of Australia.
Justice Bell was a leading criminal barrister then an eminent jurist who has served on the NSW Supreme Court with distinction since 1999 and I have no doubt that she will serve the High Court, and the wider community, with equal distinction.
In further comments made to the Sydney Morning Herald and the Australian Financial Review, the president paid tribute to Justice Bell, describing herï¿½as "a leading criminal barrister and an eminent jurist who had served on the NSW Supreme Court with distinction since 1999".
"I have no doubt that she will serve the High Court, and the wider community with equal distinction", Katzmann SC concluded.
