Esteemed District Court Judge the Honourable Justice Sophie David has been appointed to the Supreme Court in the general division, effective immediately.

Ms Chapman said Judge David’s legal background is exemplary.


“Prior to her appointment as a judge of the District Court in 2015, Judge David acted as counsel assisting the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses into Child Sexual Abuse – which included involvement in numerous public hearings and the drafting of commissioner reports,” Ms Chapman said.

Judge David’s curriculum vitae is extensive and includes work with the Legal Services Commission, as a prosecutor in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, as counsel assisting the coroner and as prosecuting counsel in Commonwealth matters, including fraud and drug importation trials.

“Sophie David has forged a remarkable career within the justice sector,” Ms Chapman added. “I have every confidence she will make an excellent addition to the Supreme Court.”
