Leading judge wins AILA award
Queensland Supreme Court judge Martin Daubney has won an Australian Insurance Law Association (AILA) award for his contribution to the industry.
Before being appointed to the court in 2007, Justice Daubney was a senior counsel with an extensive litigation and mediation practice. He was a leading mediator for insurance disputes and president of the Bar Association of Queensland, serving on its council for more than a decade.
AILA National President Angus Kench says Justice Daubney is a worthy winner of the group’s insurance law prize.
“He has been very supportive of AILA since his appointment to the bench and regularly involved in AILA events,” Mr Kench said.
Justice Daubney received his award at the association’s Queensland seminar and lunch last Wednesday.
Earlier this year he was on the judging panel for the Queensland final of AILA’s Ron Shorter Memorial Award.
