Justice Leadership Legal Biography 


The justice system owes much to The Hon Philip Cummins AM.

President of the Law Institute of Victoria Stuart Webb expressed condolences to Mr Cummins' family on behalf of the Victorian legal profession.

"Phil Cummins was a great contributor and advocate for justice.

"After his retirement as a judge of the Supreme Court he continued his service to the justice system and the community of Victoria.

"His roles included the president of Court Network, chair of the Victoria Law Foundation and chair of the Victorian Law Reform Commission.

"He was a life long contributor to the justice system. On behalf of the legal profession and for those who come into contact with the justice system I acknowledge his work in law reform, access to justice, and helping the community understand how the legal system works."
