Greg King Passionate about Justice Reform

Greg King Passionate about Justice Reform

“Greg King will be remembered for more than his legal talent”: said Kim Workman, Director of Rethinking Crime and Punishment. “He was able to engage positively with people regardless of their political, social or economic background. He made you feel as though what you had to say was important and interesting.”

“Greg was at his best when interviewing panellists on TV Seven’s “Court Report”. .He was respectful of peoples’ views, without necessarily agreeing with them.

“Greg also had a passion for justice reform and returned from an Eisenhower Fellowship earlier this year, proposing a new kind of problem solving court, known as a Management Court. He was driven by a vision of justice, and what it should look like. His influence and contribution will be sadly missed.”
