The Northern Territory Supreme Court has made history, with the appointment of a second female judge to the bench.
Jenny Blokland was this morning sworn in as the Court’s newest judge.
Alongside Justice Judith Kelly, it’s the first time two women have been Judges of the Northern Territory Supreme Court at the same time.
Justice Blokland’s legal career spans 30 years, she was elevated to ‘Judge’ after serving as the Territory’s Chief Magistrate since 2006.
She says she “hopes to be a wise and good Judge for the Northern Territory”.
