    Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Jarrod Bleijie has welcomed the appointment of The Honourable Tim Carmody QC to the position of Chief Justice, which was approved by Governor in Council today.

    “Judge Carmody’s unique blend of skills and experience will give the Court the direction and drive to continue the great work of Chief Justice Paul de Jersey of meeting the challenges of a changing legal world,” Mr Bleijie said.

    “His distinguished and diverse legal career, his administrative experience and his integrity made him the ideal choice for such an important role in our justice system.
