Prominent female figures: Justice Rachel Pepper
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.
