Change from Master to Associate Judge

The Courts Legislation Amendment Act 2015 (ACT) was notified on 7 April. Amongst other things, that Act has the effect of changing the title of the office of the “Master” of the ACT Supreme Court to “Associate Judge” of the ACT Supreme Court. That change came into effect 21 April 2015.

The Associate Judge can be referred to or addressed in the same way as a regular judge of the Supreme Court (that is, “Associate Justice McWilliam” or “Judge” if in chambers).
