From time to time the Institute is advised of the possibility of appointments in Australia and overseas countries, usually developing countries, of serving or retired judicial officers.
The Institute also has direct contact with the Commonwealth Secretariat regarding appointments in Commonwealth developing countries.
The AIJA Board has resolved to list with any contact details any judicial positions which come to the notice of the Secretariat.
EXPRESSION OF INTEREST SOUGHT FOR APPOINTMENT AS JUDGE TO THE SUPREME COURT OF NAURU
The Government of Nauru seeks expressions of interest from persons suitably qualified under Part V of the Constitution of Nauru to be appointed as judges of the Supreme Court of Nauru. The Supreme Court conducts a wide range of business in fields including land law, criminal law, civil law, migration law and constitutional law. Candidates should ideally have extensive experience in senior judicial positions.
The Supreme Court currently conducts four circuits a year for sessions up to 21 days. The number and length of sessions is likely to increase. Judges would be expected to sit as circuit judges on at least one occasion each year. The Government will consider appointment of up to three judges.
An information package may be obtained from the Secretary for Justice by requesting a copy by email.

Invitation to submit expressions of interest to join the Australian Civilian Corps
AusAID is now seeking detailed expressions of interest from highly motivated and experienced technical specialists from the public and private sectors to join the Australian Civilian Corps register (ACC).
The Government established the ACC in late 2009 as a ‘deployable public service’ – that is, a mechanism to enable the rapid deployment of civilian specialists, generally for periods of three to twelve months, to countries experiencing or emerging from natural disasters or conflict. ACC Specialists will function as development “reservists”, remaining in their regular employment until needed. When deployed, they will have the status of Australian Government officials employed under special legislation now before the Parliament.
The ACC will act as a much-needed bridge between emergency humanitarian response measures and long-term development programs. Deployees will often work in tandem with Australian or international military forces engaged in stabilisation and peace-building operations, or in post-disaster rehabilitation and reconstruction. They will be drawn from a wide range of specialisations including public sector management, electoral administration, budget strategy and implementation, aid coordination, law and justice, essential services administration, agriculture and community development.
AusAID has already established an interim ACC capability of almost 50 personnel through targeted recruitment and training during 2010, and aims to build a register of 500 trained personnel by 2014. Suitably qualified and experienced specialists are encouraged to consider becoming involved in this innovative whole-of-government initiative.
Further information on the ACC is available at www.ausaid.gov.au/acc/
Please lodge your detailed expression of interest, via the ACC website.
