My name is Georgia Douglas. I am an Australian commercial barrister, and a member of the Victorian and Queensland Bar Associations. I am passionate about the law and intrigued about legal developments due to technology, the internet, the environment and other global trends.
The cases I have been involved with have included class actions, contractual disputes, corporate fraud, intellectual property, building and land contamination disputes, and many other types of commercial litigation.
Prior to joining the Bar in 2013, I was the Associate to Justice John Dixon in the Supreme Court of Victoria, in the common law division of the court. I worked as a solicitor at the Melbourne office of Mallesons Stephen Jaques (now King and Wood Mallesons) in the Litigation and Intellectual Property departments in 2008 and 2009.
I hold Bachelors of Arts and Laws (Hons) from the University of Queensland and a Masters in Law from the University of Melbourne. I enjoy teaching and have been a Tutor at Queen’s College in the University of Melbourne and a Lecturer at RMIT, teaching Law & Regulation in the Masters of Communication program.
Finally, I am actively involved in providing pro bono assistance to the community, as a member of the Duty Barrister Scheme and a member of the barrister panel for the Consumer Action Law Centre.
