Farewell to Justice Robert Benjamin, Judge of the family Court of Australia
Speech delivered by Dr Jacoba Brasch QC, President of the Law Council of Australia at the Family Court of Australia, Hobart, 20 May 2021.
"Today we celebrate the part that your Honour has played in the administration of justice for the good of Australian families, both in Tasmania and around the Commonwealth. On behalf of the Law Council of Australia, and the 65,000 lawyers around the Commonwealth: thank you.
In Your Honour’s nearly sixteen years serving this community as Judge, you quickly became one of the Court’s most experienced and well-respected judges. I celebrate, as recognised in 2015 when you were made a Member of the Order of Australia, your significant service to the judiciary and to the law, legal education, mediation, arbitration and to professional standards."
