On Tuesday 3 September 2019, the Law Council was delighted to host The Hon Robert French AC for an informal lunch and update regarding the Law Council’s ongoing implementation and advocacy of the Justice Project. Mr French chaired the Steering Committee of eminent lawyers, jurists and academics which oversaw the Justice Project’s completion.
Since then, Mr French has made several speeches regarding the Justice Project, including at Legal Aid Queensland’s recent 40th anniversary (available here). Law Council Chief Executive Officer, Mr Jonathan Smithers, presented Mr French with a copy of the Justice Project’s final report, and thanked him for his ongoing commitment to increasing access to justice in Australia. Mr French also signed a Law Council copy of the report.
