“Mr Christopher John Bowrey’s appointment as a judge of the Federal Circuit Court of Australia in the Townsville Registry is most welcomed news.
A Townsville local, Mr Bowrey is a well-respected solicitor renowned for a calm, courteous and disciplined approach to the conduct of his client’s affairs, with over 40 years’ experience as a practitioner in family law. His appointment is both an asset for Townsville and the Federal Circuit Court.
Mr Bowrey has made a significant contribution to the profession as a member of the Townsville District Law Association, North Queensland Law Association, and the Queensland Law Society. We look forward to the contribution he will make to the judiciary, to upholding the administration of justice and serving the Australian community in this important area of law.
Mr Bowrey commences his appointment on Monday, 22 March.”
