Law Council of Australia


Death of the Hon. Justice Richard Gee

3 January 2017

The Law Council of Australia today expressed sadness at the loss of a former Family Court Judge, the Hon. Justice Richard Gee, who passed away overnight.

Law Council of Australia President, Fiona McLeod SC, said Justice Gee was a highly-respected figure in the legal fraternity.

“Justice Gee made his mark on the Australian legal system as a Judge in the Family Court of Australia for almost 20 years.

“His courage in continuing to serve the Court following the bombing of his family home in 1984 was a testament to his determination and commitment to the justice system.

“On behalf of the Law Council of Australia I extend our sincere sympathies to Justice Gee’s family, friends and colleagues.”
