A newly appointed judge, Rashelle Seiden SC, brings almost 30 years of legal experience to the bench and her new roles, with her expertise ranging from constitutional and administrative law, trusts, corporate and commercial law, insolvency and revenue, including tax crime.

Seiden most recently practised at New Chambers and will be sworn in as a judge of the District Court of NSW on 15 April.


She was first called to the Queensland Bar in 1996 before being admitted to the NSW Bar in 2000. In 2013, Seiden was appointed a senior counsel for NSW and has previously practised at Ground Floor Wentworth Chambers.

NSW Attorney-General Michael Daley congratulated Seiden on her new positions.

“I warmly congratulate Ms Seiden on her appointments to the District Court of NSW and the Civil and Administrative Tribunal of NSW (NCAT).

“Ms Seiden is highly regarded in legal circles for her incisive approach to thorny legal matters and ability to bring clarity to complex cases,” he said.

“Her skills and expertise will be welcomed by the District Court of NSW and NCAT.”
