Today Allens Arthur Robinson solicitor Michael Ball was sworn in as a judge of the Supreme Court of NSW at the Banco Court.
Ball's appointment as a judge was announced by the NSW Attorney-General John Hatzistergos in March 2010.
Announcing the appointment, Hatzistergos noted that it is a rare honour for a solicitor to be directly appointed to the Supreme Court and described it as a reflection of Ball's "significant skill and acuity" as a "lawyer with more than three decades of experience in the legal profession".
