I am pleased to announce that the Bar Council has concluded the process for the appointment of a new Executive Director to run the Bar office. We had a very strong field of candidates and anticipate we will be in a position to make a formal announcement next week.
Meeting with the Victorian Attorney-General
On Tuesday, Senior Vice President Róisín Annesley QC and I met with the Victorian Attorney-General, the Honourable Jaclyn Symes. It was a wide-ranging and productive discussion covering issues of mutual interest. We thank the Attorney-General for making the time to talk with us and hope it will be the first of many such discussions.
Power & Consent
Also, on Tuesday, Rachel Doyle S.C. launched her book Power & Consent, addressing the issue of sexual harassment. I commend it to all members of the Bar.
I wish everyone an enjoyable break over the Easter period.
Christopher Blanden QC
