New judicial conduct protocol for District Court

A third protocol now provides a further pathway for Queensland Law Society members to raise concerns on judicial conduct.

The protocol signed this week by District Court Chief Judge Brian Devereaux SC joins two other protocols – covering the Supreme Court and Magistrates Court – that provide an informal procedure whereby members can raise concerns on judicial conduct with the QLS President, who can then take them to the appropriate judicial chief.

The protocols and further guidance are available with QLS Guidance Statement No.22, ‘Dealing with inappropriate judicial conduct in the courtroom’.
