LAW COUNCIL OF AUSTRALIA MEDIA RELEASE 25 September 2015 Legal profession congratulates Australia’s first Indigenous silk The Law Council of Australia and Australian Bar Association have warmly congratulated Anthony McAvoy SC on becoming the first ever Senior Counsel of Indigenous heritage. Mr McAvoy has been a pivotal member of the Law Council of Australia’s Indigenous Legal Issues Committee since 2001. Law Council of Australia President-elect Stuart Clark AM said Mr McAvoy’s appointment was richly deserved and gave recognition to an already distinguished legal career. “Mr McAvoy has been an invaluable contributor to the Law Council’s work over a very long period of time,” Mr Clark said. "His contributions to the Indigenous Legal Issues Committee – which have included numerous appearances before Parliamentary Inquiries – have been highly effective and wholly appreciated. “Long may he continue to contribute his knowledge and expertise to the Law Council and the nation,” Mr Clark added. Australian Bar Association President Fiona McLeod SC said Mr McAvoy was an asset to the profession. “Mr McAvoy’s deep commitment to Indigenous justice is widely known and respected,” Ms McLeod said. “This commitment was rightly acknowledged when he won the inaugural National Indigenous Legal Professional of the Year Award in 2010. “On behalf of the Australian Bar Association, I warmly congratulate Mr McAvoy on his appointment as Senior Counsel. I am sure he will continue to make a valuable contribution to the legal profession long into the future," Ms McLeod concluded.
