In Brief Issue #1129

Georgina Schoff KC

This week the Commonwealth Attorney General announced the appointment of Raelene Sharp KC as the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions. Ms Sharp has been a member of our Bar since 2010 and was appointed Senior Counsel in 2022. On behalf of the Victorian Bar, I congratulate her and wish her every success in her new role.

On Tuesday evening, I attended an event hosted by the Victorian Bar entitled When it Gets Personal: Addressing Judicial Bullying. A panel – chaired by Lisa Hannon KC and comprising the Chief Judge of the County Court, the Honourable Justice Kidd, the Director of the Judicial Commission of Victoria, Alexis Eddy, the Chair of the Criminal Bar Association, David Hallowes S.C., and Stella Gold from our Health & Wellbeing committee – discussed ways to deal with judicial bullying, how to make a complaint and where to turn for support. The event was well attended, and I thank all of those who participated. It has been recorded and I encourage members to log in to the CPD catalogue, and view what was an extremely thought-provoking discussion.

Many members of our Bar, myself included, have experienced or witnessed challenging judicial behaviour. Whether it reaches the level of ‘bullying’ or not, it can be personally very difficult to deal with and can also affect the administration of justice in a particular case. The Judicial Commission has published Judicial Conduct Guidelines that can be found here. I am always available to assist members who have had a bad day in Court for all the wrong reasons, and we have protocols in place to deal with it.

On Wednesday night, the Victorian Bar hosted the launch of the Equality and Diversity Internship. This is a joint initiative of the Victorian Bar’s Equality & Diversity Committee, the Supreme Court of Victoria, the Federal Court of Australia, and the County Court of Victoria, which seeks to promote greater cultural diversity in the legal profession by providing three law students from culturally diverse backgrounds the opportunity to work with practising barristers and serving judges. The program has been many years in the planning and suffered delays due to Covid, but is finally underway. I congratulate all those who have been involved, particularly the Honourable Justice Forbes, who was the Chair of the Equality & Diversity committee when the program was first conceived and stepped in at the last minute on Wednesday night to speak at the launch. I also thank the many judges and barristers who support the interns.

Bar Council met on Wednesday evening. We resolved to seek expressions of interest for the position of director of BCL which will become vacant upon my resignation from it. BCL is an integral part of the Victorian Bar, enabling us to work together in geographically proximate chambers with few barriers to entry. I encourage those with the right skills to apply. Please also consider volunteering to join one of the Victorian Bar’s committees; you can do so here.

As is the convention, the Bar Council also appointed one of our members as a director of the Law Council of Australia. I thank Tim Goodwin for agreeing to take on this additional duty.

This morning, Vice President Elizabeth Bennett S.C. spoke on behalf of the Bar at a ceremonial sitting of the Federal Court to mark the appointment of the Honourable Justice Mordecai (Mordy) Bromberg, President of the Australian Law Reform Commission.

Members will be pleased to know that the Victorian Attorney-General has this week extended the expiration date of the Victorian Bar's Professional Standards Scheme to 30 June 2025. If you are not a member, you should seriously consider becoming one to obtain the advantages of limited liability. You can view more information about the scheme here.

Finally, with the end of the year fast approaching, please save the date for the Victorian Bar’s annual Christmas event. This year it will be held in the late afternoon/evening of Thursday, 14 December. Come along with your chamber mates and help us to make it a real party.

Georgina Schoff KC

Meet The Artist Kate Ballis

Tuesday, 21 November from 5:00pm

The Essoign Club – Level 1, 205 William Street Melbourne

You are invited to the Official Exhibition Opening of:

Kate Ballis
Atlantis Revisited

This series by Kate Ballis explores the mythology of the lost lands of Atlantis.

Shot in the Greek Isles, the narrative blends Plato’s story of Atlantis in Timaeus and Critias (c 360BCE), the history of the Minoan Civilisation and the new age concepts of Atlantis.

These striking photographs have been created using an infrared filter on a converted full spectrum camera to capture the essence of myth, where the line between truth and fiction is blurred.

Please see Exhibition Catalogue here.

Brought to you by Marita Smith, Director of Gallerysmith in collaboration with The Essoign Club.

I hope you can join us on the night for a drink and to meet the artist.

New SAC Report: 1 in 5 people receiving a CCO also receive imprisonment

The Sentencing Advisory Council has released a new report investigating 'combined orders', which involve someone receiving both a term of imprisonment as well as a community correction order (CCO). The Council found that of 95,000 CCOs imposed in Victoria in the 9 years from 2012 to 2021, over 18,000 of them were imposed alongside a term of imprisonment (19%). 

Other key findings in the report include: 

  • there has been a significant increase in the use of combined orders, with about 3,000 combined orders now being imposed each year, 
  • most combined orders were imposed on males (90%),
  • many combined orders were imposed in cases involving family violence offending (42%),
  • about half of all combined orders in the Magistrates' Court now involve a time served prison sentence with no further time to serve after sentencing (49% in 2020); 
  • combined order CCOs had much higher rates of supervision and treatment, whereas CCOs imposed without a term of imprisonment involved much higher rates of unpaid community work.

Melbourne Law School Upcoming Events

Melbourne Law School is pleased to present the following events:  

2023 James Merralls Fellowship Law Lecture

The Resurgence of Indigenous Law

Presenter: Professor John Borrows, University of Toronto Law School

In this lecture, Professor Borrows will discuss how Indigenous peoples’ legal principles can generate rich resources for decision-making in contemporary circumstances. They can be reinvigorated, revised or newly created to enhance governance and policy within Indigenous communities and beyond. This can develop community capacity, foster local, state and national leadership, develop business opportunities, and influence policy. Revitalizing and newly developing Indigenous law can help develop well-being and economic success. Corporations and other commercial actors can also benefit from understanding, applying and incorporating Indigenous law in their agreements and activities with Indigenous peoples. When we see law as something people do, which invites participation, deliberation, persuasion, disagreement, discussion and agreement, this opens space for the revitalization of law and economic opportunities in broader ways. We hope you can join us for this opportunity to hear Prof. John Borrows speak. The lecture will commence at 6:00pm sharp and is proudly co-hosted alongside the Victorian Bar.
Date & time: Wednesday, 22 November 2023, 6:00pm - 7:00pm  
Location: Melbourne Law School, G08 Theatre, 185 Pelham St, Carlton

“The Defamation Trial of the Century”

You are invited to attend the 2023 Resolution Institute Annual Lunch featuring special guest speaker, Peter Bartlett, Media Partner, MinterEllison and the leader of the Nine Defence Team.

Litigation throws up many challenges. Few like this case. Ben Roberts-Smith, one of Australia’s most decorated War Heros, took on the Nine Network (the Melbourne Age, the Sydney Morning Herald and two of Australia’s leading journalists). It was a significant challenge to the public’s right to know. Roberts-Smith was able to use every legal option at his disposal. Peter Bartlett will provide key insights on meeting the challenges of the matter that ultimately delivered a comprehensive win (now subject to Appeal) in what has been hailed by Australian media as ‘The Defamation Trial of the Century’.   

The lunch will be held at InterContinental Melbourne The Rialto. Located in the heart of Melbourne on Collins Street in the business and legal precincts, the hotel is a fine dining destination with a stylish mix of heritage and modern luxury surrounded by contemporary artworks. Comprising Entrée, Main, Petit Fours and Beverages, lunch will commence with Networking Drinks on Arrival from 12:00 to 12:30pm and will conclude at 2:30pm.    

Join fellow members and guests of the judiciary, government, media and commerce for what will be a must-attend event. As seats are strictly limited, be sure to register asap.
