Gregory Eugene Smith SC MP, Attorney General & Minister for Justice, 11 March 2014

Gregory Eugene Smith SC MP, Attorney General & Minister for Justice, led a private CEO Boardroom Lunch for 20 senior business executives, in a candid discussion around “the challenges and opportunities facing the NSW legal system.” This lunch was proudly sponsored by Gilbert & Tobin Lawyers.

After the 2011 election, Gregory Eugene Smith SC MP was appointed Attorney General and Minister for Justice – having been opposition spokesman on those matters since 2007.  After graduating from Sydney University with an LLB in 1973 he has largely worked as a criminal lawyer for federal and state agencies. He was Instructing Solicitor to the Stewart Royal Commission into Drug Trafficking in 1982-83 and a senior adviser (Legal) to the National Crime Authority before he was called to the Bar in 1987.

Mr Smith was appointed a NSW Crown Prosecutor in the same year. He rose to Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions in April in 2002 and was appointed a Senior Counsel in 2004. He has prosecuted hundreds of criminal trials and made frequent appearances in the High Court and other appellate courts.

The Attorney General is committed to ensuring the community is protected against serious violent offences while also endorsing policies that will reduce reoffending and provide genuine rehabilitation to criminals. He also looks forward to working on the harmonisation of laws with his federal and state counterparts.
