SHADOW MINISTER FOR CONSTITUTIONAL REFORM
MEMBER FOR ISAACS
PROFESSOR HILARY CHARLESWORTH AM APPOINTMENT TO THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT OF JUSTICE
Labor warmly welcomes Professor Hilary Charlesworth’s election to the International Court of Justice.
Professor Charlesworth AM is one of Australia’s most brilliant legal minds.
As both a scholar and jurist she has made a significant contribution to the study and practice of international law.
In 2013, as Attorney-General, I was proud to nominate her to serve as a temporary judge of the ICJ for the hearing of Australia’s successful anti-whaling case.
I thank the Attorney-General and the Foreign Minister for their nomination of Professor Charlesworth to the ICJ.
