Law Council welcomes new appointment to Federal Court

11 June 2021

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

“Ms Helen Rofe QC’s appointment as a judge of the Federal Court of Australia in the Victorian Registry is most welcomed news.

This appointment will fill the vacancy left by Justice Simon Steward’s departure to the High Court.

Ms Rofe QC is recognised in Chambers and Partners, and as a leading Senior Counsel in the 2019 Doyles Guide in the areas of: Intellectual Property and Technology, Media and Communications.

We look forward to the contribution she will make to the judiciary, to upholding the administration of justice and serving the Australian community in this important area of law. Ms Rofe commences her appointment on 12 July.”
