He was previously a member of the Board of Legal Aid Queensland and a past President of the Indigenous Lawyers Association of Queensland.

Other members of the inquiry include former Supreme Court of Queensland judge the Honourable Roslyn Atkinson AO and Federal Court judicial registrar Ivan Ingram.

The new Chair, who starts on 1 July, said: “It will be incredibly important that the community has confidence to share in this process as we work to acknowledge the complete history of the colonisation of Queensland.


“I know this body of work will change the future in a positive way for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Queensland, and Queensland more broadly.”
