24 July 2023

The Law Council of Australia pays tribute to past President Mr Tim Bugg AM, who passed away last night.

Mr Bugg was President of the Law Council of Australia in 2006–2007. Law Council President Luke Murphy praised the contribution Mr Bugg made to the legal profession.

“I was very saddened to hear of Mr Bugg’s passing. He was a busy lawyer, working as a partner at Dobson, Mitchell and Allport in Hobart, but he also found time to take on important roles supporting and promoting the legal professional nationally and internationally.

“Mr Bugg played an active role in seeking to facilitate overseas market access for Australian lawyers, particularly in the United States, during his time as Law Council President. This was an ambitious task that saw him promoting the skills and experience of Australia to the world. Such was his reputation in the international legal profession, he was later appointed Chair of the International Legal Services Advisory Council.

“On behalf of the Law Council, I extend my deepest sympathy to Mr Bugg’s family as well as his many friends, and I join the broader legal profession and community in mourning his passing,” said Mr Murphy.
