We are extremely fortunate to have Justice Rachel Pepper of the NSW Land and Environment Court at the ANU College of Law.
During her visit, Justice Pepper will be holding a short talk, followed by a Q and A for female law students. On the agenda will be the significant challenges that face women in law today.
Justice Pepper was appointed as a Judge of the Land and Environment Court of NSW in May 2009. From 1997 until her appointment in 2009, Justice Pepper practised as a barrister at the New South Wales Bar. Her principal areas of practice were general commercial law and public law, including constitutional law. While at the bar, Justice Pepper was a member of Bar Council from 2000 – 09 and was Secretary of the Bar Council from 2006 – 09. Prior to being called to the bar, Justice Pepper was the Associate to Justice McHugh in the High Court of Australia from 1996 – 97.
She graduated from the ANU College of Law in 1994 with a First Class Honours degree.
