I’m told by a little birdie (who will hopefully grow up to be a legal eagle) that the announcement of the next High Court judge is coming today or tomorrow. After 4 male appointments, could it be that the Howard Government will finally appoint a woman, or will the old boys’ club make it 5 from 5?

    James McConvill (Daekin University Law School) has a very interesting conclusion at to whom he feels would make the best replacement :

    Who then is the best choice?

    Gareth Evans. While Evans is now the head of the International Crisis Group and jet-setting around the world, he is needed back at home. Evans once decried that he suffered from relevancy deficit syndrome after 1996. This is one sure-fired way to overcome it. A duo of Justice Michael Kirby and Evans at the apex of judicial power in this country would be a beautiful thing.


    I am thinking that the Howard Government may well take a differing opinion.
