Eulogy delivered by Mr Justice
Carruthers on 23 November 1994 in the
Supreme Court of New South Wales
This is the first occasion on which the Admiralty Court has assem-
bled since the sad announcement of the death yesterday of Morella
Calder.
I should like to express the deep sympathy of the Court to
Morella's husband, Tim Hancock (of the New South Wales Bar) and
their son, Justin Calder Hancock.
Morella Calder was a pioneer in the practice of Maritime Law in
this country. She was one of the only two women lawyers who
practised maritime law in this country in the 1960s.
Having earlier graduated in Arts and Law from the University of
Adelaide, Ms Calder went to London and worked there in the
shipping field. She made an immediate impact in London and
attended at sessions of the Third United Nations Conferences on the
Law of the Sea, held at Caracas, Geneva and New York.
Upon her return to Australia she again practised law in South
Australia with Finlaysons and later, when she moved to Sydney
(inter alia), with Michell Sillar.
She was very involved in the work of the Maritime Law Associa-
tion of Australia and New Zealand, being one of the foundation
members of the Association and, until this year, was the only woman
to have held office in the Association.
