Queensland Law Society has welcomed the State Government’s permanent judicial appointment of Jason Schubert to the Rockhampton Magistrates Court.
QLS President Luke Murphy said Mr Schubert, who has served as an Acting Magistrate since 2014, would be a welcome addition to the Central Queensland magistracy.
Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath announced the appointment today, saying Mr Schubert brought strong experience to the role.
“Mr Schubert was admitted as a legal practitioner in 2007 and has served in a number of senior roles since his admission,” she said.
“He has performed the role of magistrate in 38 courthouses across the state, including extended relieving periods in several regional locations.
“Mr Schubert has also served as an acting judicial registrar and as executive manager in the Office of the State Coroner.”
Mr Schubert, who has been appointed for the next two years, will commence his role and be sworn-in during a ceremony in Brisbane tomorrow morning.
