Family Law Conference – Law on the Lounge 2015

Directors William Carr and Jorja Brady presented a paper on “judicial bullying” to the Law on the Lounge Family Law Conference on Saturday, 30 May 2015 at the Conrad Hotel, Bali.

The conference was attended by approximately 180 family lawyers and barristers who practice throughout Australia and judicial officers from the Federal Circuit Court and the Family Courts.

William and Jorja gave examples of judges and magistrates in Courts in Australia misbehaving or exhibiting bullying behaviour. They concluded their paper by suggesting that judges and magistrates in Courts in Western Australia (including the Family Court of Western Australia) should be subject to the same level of professional scrutiny as other members of the legal fraternity and support the call made by the Law Reform Commission of Western Australia for the introduction of a Judicial Commission in the State in the same model as New South Wales.
