Change at top for High Court
Justice Susan Thomas will become Chief High Court Judge when Justice Geoffrey Venning steps down to return to full-time judging at the end of May.
Chief Justice Helen Winkelmann said Justice Venning’s calm, measured leadership and superb administrative abilities characterised his five years of service in the role, which included establishing lists to deal with particular areas of the court’s work and centralising circuit work to the three main registries.
Justice Thomas has taken a leadership role in work underway within the justice system to improve access to justice and to improve the support of the courts’ processes in the area of criminal justice.
