6 April 2021

All comments to be attributed to Law Council President, Dr Jacoba Brasch QC.

“The Law Council of Australia welcomes Attorney-General Michaelia Cash’s announcement that Mr Jonathon Davis QC, Ms Jennifer Howe, and Mr Colin Campbell have been appointed to the Federal Circuit Court of Australia, and Judge Paul Howard elevated to the Family Court of Australia.

Justice Howard commenced his appointment at the Brisbane registry today, as did Judge Davis and Judge Howe in in Melbourne, and Judge Campbell in Sydney. These appointments further complement the current cohort of outstanding and dedicated judges within the courts.

We look forward to the contribution each of these new appointments will make to the judiciary, and to upholding the administration of justice and serving the Australian community.

The Law Council would welcome further appointments to both the Federal Circuit Court and Family Court of Australia to assist with their significant and growing workloads and to help clear backlogs.”
