Owen Dixon Chambers East was the first building to be owned by BCL. Offering 13 floors of affordable chambers varying in price, size and layout, Owen Dixon Chambers East is also connected to Owen Dixon Chambers West. The building was named after Sir Owen Dixon, one of Australia’s most renowned legal minds who served as Chief Justice of the High Court and counted among his contemporaries former Prime Minister Robert Menzies.
In 2017, the level one conferencing facilities underwent a complete refurbishment to create a contemporary hub for long standing and new members to engage in whilst keeping in mind the Bar’s long established values.
With amazing views overlooking the supreme court and providing one of the Melbourne CBD’s most sought after legal locations, Owen Dixon Chambers East also houses a number of barristers’ clerks, the collegial Essoign Club, the Victorian Bar Office and library and the Commonwealth Bank. Clients are also provided with electronic chamber door access for enhanced security.
