Karin Emerton is a trials division justice at the Supreme Court of Victoria. She is a graduate of the University of Sydney and University of New South Wales in Australia, and received her doctoral degree from the Sorbonne.[1]

Emerton was appointed Senior Counsel in November 2007, so her elevation to the Supreme Court in 2009 was unusually swift.[2] A portrait of Dr Emerton, Woman and pipe, by Merilyn Fairskye was a finalist for the 1987 Archibald Prize [3]
