LIV vice-president joins VLRC


Cite as: (2003) 77(8) LIJ, p.16

Law Institute vice-president Judith Peirce has resigned from Council after accepting a position with the Victorian Law Reform Commission.

Ms Peirce was expected to begin her two-year full-time appointment as Law Reform Commissioner to the Domestic Violence Reference on 11 August.

The appointment brings to an end Ms Peirce’s four years of service on the Institute Council, during which time she served as fifth executive member, treasurer and, this year, vice-president.

She also served on a number of Institute committees, including the Ethics, Access to Justice and Audit Committees.

She was very disappointed to be leaving Council and said it had been an extremely hard decision to make. “I was president-elect and the first [to be in that position] from the community sector, but now I will be doing other work in the community sector.

“This other position does bring together a whole lot of strands which have been in my professional life, so it was an opportunity I couldn’t refuse.”

Ms Peirce has also resigned from her role as manager of the Brimbank Community Centre, where she has worked for the past seven years, and her position on the board at PILCH.

At the time of writing, the Institute Council had not elected a vice-president to replace Ms Peirce.
