Guest Speaker: The Honourable Justice Virginia Bell AC, High Court of Australia

Justice Bell was appointed to the High Court of Australia on 3 February 2009.   She had previously been a judge of the Supreme Court of  NSW since March 1999, first in the Common Law Division and then, after early 2008, in the Court of Appeal. She graduated from the University of Sydney as a Bachelor of Laws in 1977. After seven years as a solicitor with the Redfern Legal Centre, she was admitted to the New South Wales Bar in 1984 and was appointed a Senior Counsel in 1997. Justice Bell practised as a public defender between 1986 and 1989 before returning to the private Bar. Between 1994 and 1997 she was a counsel assisting the Royal Commission into the New South Wales Police Service.

She served as president of the Australian Institute of Judicial Administration 2006 to 2008 and was Chair of the University of Wollongong Law Faculty Advisory Committee from 2007-2008. From 1998-1999, she served as a part-time Commissioner of the NSW Law Reform Commission. On 26 January 2012, Justice Bell was appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia for “eminent service to the judiciary and to the law through leadership in criminal law reform and public policy development, to judicial administration, and as an advocate for the economically and socially disadvantaged”.
