The Members and staff of List A Barristers congratulate Allan Myers AO QC on being named the first Fellow of the University of Melbourne at the Conferring of Degrees Ceremony on 31 July 2015.
The citation noted that this was “in recognition of his exemplary community leadership and significant contributions to [the University of Melbourne]. It is difficult to think of a more worthy recipient”.
The President of the Victorian Bar, Jim Peters QC, observed “Together with his wife Maria, Mr Myers has been an outstanding contributor to many philanthropic causes in Australia. It is particularly pleasing to the Victorian Bar that one of its finest barristers and acknowledged leaders has been recognised in this way.”
Allan was a founding member of List A Barristers in 1990 and has been a practising member of the Victorian Bar for almost 40 years, more than 28 of those years as Queen’s Counsel.
