Justice Brooking resigns from CLE centre


Cite as: (2003) 77(4) LIJ, p.16

Supreme Court Justice Robert Brooking has resigned as director of judicial studies at the Sir Zelman Cowen Centre for Continuing Legal Education after less than a year in the position.

Justice Brooking, who is now a reserve judge, resigned from the Centre last December but agreed to stay on until 31 January.

Justice Brooking told the LIJ that he did not want to publicly comment on the reasons for his resignation, except to say he thought himself obliged to resign.

A spokeswoman for Victoria University, which runs the Centre, confirmed Justice Brooking’s resignation but offered no other comment. At the time of writing no replacement had been appointed.

Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Harber Phillips, who is provost of the Sir Zelman Cowen Centre, congratulated Justice Brooking on the job he did at the Centre.

“As we would expect from a person of such intellect and industry, there’s been a great deal of progress in the activities of the Centre,” he said.

Justice Brooking was appointed as head of the Centre in February 2002. The Centre delivered its first judicial education sessions last October.
