Sir Gerard Brennan was the fifth Queenslander to be appointed as a Justice of the High Court of Australia when he was appointed in 1981. He later joined the ranks of his fellow Queenslanders, Sir Samuel Griffith and Sir Harry Gibbs, when appointed Chief Justice of Australia in 1995. I had the great privilege of working for him as his Executive Associate in 1995-1996.
