Chief Justice addresses the Commercial Bar
20 October 2016
Commercial law is developing and advancing in Victoria as a significant part of the national jurisprudence, Chief Justice Marilyn Warren told a reception for the Commercial Bar Association on Wednesday 19 October 2016. Chief Justice Warren said the Supreme Court's focus on service to commercial litigation had resulted in increased speed. In 2016 the average time from start (initiation) to finish (finalisation) for civil appeals stands at just on six and a half months. Commercial litigation contributes an estimated $7 billion dollars plus per year to Victoria.
