The Supreme Court of Victoria is responsible for maintaining the roll which contains the names of persons admitted to practise law in Victoria.
The Victorian Legal Services Board and Commissioner (VLSB+C) has today issued proceedings in the Supreme Court to obtain an order that Nicola Gobbo’s name be removed (struck-off) from the roll.
The proceedings have been issued pursuant to section 23(1)(b) of the Legal Profession Uniform Law.
Ms Gobbo has not held a practising certificate since 2014 and has not been able to practise as a lawyer since then.
We can’t comment further while this matter is before the Court.
