His Honour Judge Jarro, who identifies as Ghangulu on his father’s side and with connections to Bidjara on his mother’s side, was a part-time member of the Aboriginal Land Tribunal in 2015.
He received the inaugural 2020 QUT Outstanding Indigenous Alumnus of the Year award and has continued his association with QUT on the Faculty of Law’s advisory group, as QUT Council Indigenous representative from 2008 to 2012 and as chair of QUT’s Indigenous Education and Employment Consultative Committee for four years from 2014.
Outside law, he has been involved in Indigenous arts, holding board positions in a number of organisations including Queensland Theatre.
Professor Dan Hunter, Executive Dean of the QUT Faculty of Law, said Judge Jarro’s contributions to the legal profession and his community demonstrate commitment, ambition and integrity.
“He is a role model for other young aspiring and practising Indigenous lawyers who has demonstrated core values congruent with QUT’s throughout his career and in his commitment to the university, Indigenous and wider communities,” Professor Hunter said.
The Outstanding Alumni Awards recognise graduates of QUT and its predecessor institutions for exceptional professional and personal achievements and contributions to the local, national, and international community.
His Honour Judge Jarro and previously announced 2020 faculty and other award winners were recognised at an event at QUT tonight.
