Ms Mitchelmore’s broad experience and expertise, including in administrative law, constitutional law, criminal law, local government and environmental law and migration, will be a great asset to the LRC.
Ms Mitchelmore was admitted as a lawyer in 2000, called to the Bar in 2004 and appointed Senior Counsel in 2018.
The LRC is an independent statutory body constituted under the Law Reform Commission Act 1967. It provides expert law reform advice to the NSW Government on issues referred to it by the Attorney General.
Ms Mitchelmore commenced her appointment on 1 September, for a period expiring on 31 August 2024.
