Law Council Congratulates New Chief Justice of Federal Court

The Law Council of Australia congratulates the Honourable Justice Debra Mortimer on her appointment as the new Chief Justice of the Federal Court of Australia.

“The Law Council is delighted with Justice Mortimer’s appointment, the first female Chief Justice since the Federal Court was established in 1976,” said Law Council of Australia President Luke Murphy.

“Justice Mortimer is well known and highly respected in the legal community. In 2011, when her Honour was at the Victorian Bar, she was awarded the Law Council of Australia President’s Medal for her outstanding work that embodied the very best traits of the legal profession.

I also pay the Law Council’s respect and thanks to Chief Justice James Alsop AC for his outstanding 10 years of service as Chief Justice, and wish him well for the future,” said Mr Murphy.
