The Chief Justice of NSW has blazed an incomparable trail, writes David Marr (BA 1967, LLB 1971).

"That such a meteor ended up as Chief Justice of NSW was a surprise at the time, but every stage of Jim Spigelman's remarkable career has been like that: briefly surprising and then absolutely convincing.

"The latest surprise he has sprung is early retirement in order, he says, to "refresh" himself.

"More surprises are surely on the cards."
