Eight Selborne was established in 1963, initially under the leadership of the legendary Jack Kenny QC. This year we celebrate 60 years of practice, all from the same floor on Phillip Street, in Sydney’s central business district.
Eight Selborne is a harmonious, tight-knit and collegiate floor. Many of our current and former members have stayed here for their entire careers and many lifelong friendships have been made.
Former members of the Floor have gone on to join the High Court of Australia, the Federal Court of Australia, the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court of New South Wales and the Federal Circuit Court and Family Court of Australia.
