'Meagan’s presence at Victoria legal Aid will be very much missed but her presence on the bench means her commitment to justice for all will be very much sustained.

'While Director Legal Practice, Meagan helped us develop as a modern, dynamic and quality focused legal practice. This includes ensuring that we are discharging our duties to act ethically and lawfully and provide our vulnerable clients and the broader community with the high quality legal help they need and deserve,' said Bevan.

In 2012, Meagan received the Law Institute of Victoria President’s Award for Accredited Specialist of the Year, and is currently Chair of the Law Institute of Victoria’s Specialist Accreditation Board.
