not from the highland

but born and bred in Adelaide

….this is Margaret Nyland.

 

fondly known as ‘Judge

by her colleagues

she put at ease

the nick name stuck and won’t budge

she refers to them happily

as her family.

 

After 19 years as a Judge for the SA Supreme Court

retirement was sought…

 

but alas, a retirement disorder

a high responsibility was in order

for this law practitioner

to be the royal commissioner

into the child protection system

that had too many errors to list them.

 

after a two year process,

the 850 page report went to press

the report hit a raw nerve

with the content and title

….’the life they deserve
