Trinity alumnus Geoffrey Nettle (TC 1974) appointed to the High Court.

The prominent judicial figure will replace Susan Crennan as justice of High Court, who will leave the High Court in February.

Justice Nettle is currently a judge of the Victorian Court of Appeal.

Attorney-General George Brandis said Justice Nettle has had a brilliant legal career.

"I can tell you that in consulting widely in relation to this appointment, Justice Nettle's name came up time and time again as a particularly eminent candidate for appointment to the High Court," he said.

"So I'd like to take this occasion to congratulate his honour on his appointment."
