    SBS has recently reported on the appointment of Raj Malhotra to the Magistrates' Court of Victoria.

    It's a very proud moment for us Indians to see this cultural diversity in the legal profession.

    We have been working on this diversity issue in the legal profession through the Asian Australian Lawyers Association and this is a step towards piercing the 'bamboo ceiling.' A very welcome step indeed
