Former barrister Graeme Page’s career may have ended today after the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Queensland ordered an injunction restraining him from engaging in legal practice.
The Legal Services Commission had brought an application in the Supreme Court just last Friday. This occurred after it became aware last week that, despite not holding a practising certificate, Page appeared in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia on a number of occasions between September 2022 and October 2022 when he was not entitled to do so.
A person from the Legal Services Commission this afternoon confirmed to us that the effect of the order made today is to prohibit Page from practicing as a barrister.
We do not yet know why Page did not hold a practising certificate. We had asked various barristers from his former Chambers, but they had all declined to comment.
