The Law Institute of Victoria has welcomed the appointment of immediate past president Katie Miller as Executive Director Legal Practice at Victoria Legal Aid.

LIV President Steven Sapountsis said Ms Miller would bring extensive public sector experience and legal profession knowledge to the role.

“Katie has been a valued member of the LIV council and executive for several years and a champion of innovation in the legal profession,” Mr Sapountsis said.

He extended congratulations to Ms Miller on behalf of the Victorian and wider legal profession.

“She has over 11 years’ experience in providing advice and litigation services to state and federal governments, and has a deep understanding of governance issues,” he said.

“She has been a passionate advocate for justice for all, who keenly upholds the rule of law, the Charter of Human Rights and privacy protections. She will be a great asset to Victoria Legal Aid and the people it represents.”

Ms Miller spent much of her presidential year in 2015 investigating disruption and innovation in the legal profession.

She has a long history in supporting lawyers through the LIV as Chair of the Accredited Specialisation Board; Chair of the Social Media Task force (now Technology and the Law); and member on Corporate Governance, Government Lawyers, Administrative Law and Human Rights; Young Lawyers sections.

She will also moderate an LIV Insights breakfast “Brave New World of Law” which is looking at innovation and disruption in the legal profession and featuring keynote speaker Phil Ruthven on Wednesday 20 July 2017.
