Media Release

The Honourable Justice Mordecai Bromberg has been appointed President of the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) for a five year term commencing on 10 July 2023.

The Australian Law Reform Commission plays an important role in ensuring our laws continue to work in the best interest of the Australia people. Its recommendations to government help to simplify the law, promote new or better ways to administer the law, and improve access to justice.

On behalf of the Australian Government, I congratulate Justice Bromberg on his appointment, and look forward to his contribution to the ALRC.

Justice Bromberg has significant experience in the leadership of legal research and expertise across a broad range of practice areas, including industrial law, personal injuries, commercial law, product liability, constitutional law, administrative law, and trade practices.

Justice Bromberg has been a judge of the Federal Court of Australia since 2009. In 2005 Justice Bromberg became the founding president of the Australian Institute of Employment Rights and now chairs the Advisory Board of the Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law at the University of Melbourne.

Justice Bromberg’s appointment follows a merit-based process. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all applicants who indicated an interest in this very important role.

The Government would also like to thank the Honourable Justice Mark Moshinsky for his service as Acting President of the ALRC and looks forward to his continued contribution to the work of the ALRC as a part-time Commissioner.
