Leave No Stone Unturned

Leave No Stone Unturned

By Perveen Maan

Supreme Court Justice Michael McDonald has some advice for aspiring barristers. Justice McDonald was a barrister for 25 years before his appointment to the Supreme Court of Victoria in September 2014. He was appointed Senior Counsel in 2005. He spoke to the YLJ about the transition from solicitor to barrister and his experiences at the Victorian Bar. Tell us about your journey from law student to the Supreme Court of Victoria. I attended Monash University in 1977 at 17 fresh out of school. I spent two years at Monash but did not do terribly well. I was not focused on study and found it difficult to adjust to the freedom that university offered compared to school. So, I took a two year break.
