The closing date for junior counsel applications to be appointed to the Commonwealth DPP's External Junior Counsel Panel is 13 December 2017.
The application process is an opportunity for new counsel to join an existing four year Panel that was established in 2016 and will be in place until 2020. The Panel approach allows the CDPP to boost the number of junior counsel briefed, improve gender equity in its briefing practices and create a quick and easy application process for counsel seeking to be briefed. Further, by having a Panel which is reviewed every four years, the CDPP can ensure that the advocates it briefs have up-to-date and relevant experience to undertake prosecution work for the CDPP.
A factsheet, which provides greater detail about the Panel is available here.
Applications close on 13 December 2017, and must be submitted via the CDPP website: www.cdpp.gov.au
Counsel currently on the Panel need not apply, however they may take this opportunity to update their details and work experience via their website
