New Chief Magistrate Appointed

Judge Lisa Hannan has been appointed Chief Magistrate of the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria effective 17 November 2019.

Judge Hannan was appointed to the County Court in 2006, after serving as a Magistrate and Coroner for eight years.

Judge Hannan will join the Judicial College Board upon the retirement of Chief Magistrate Peter Lauritsen in November. We look forward to working closely with Judge Hannan in the years ahead. 

We also take this opportunity to thank Chief Magistrate Lauritsen for his significant contribution to the College Board over the past seven years.
