George’s formal qualifications are a bachelor’s degree in law (LL.B. 1977) and a master’s degree in law (LL.M. 2004) both from Sydney University. George was admitted as a legal practitioner in New South Wales (in 1977), in Queensland (in 1999), the Federal Courts of Australia (in 1991) and the High Court of Australia (also in 1991). He is a member of the Queensland Law Society and holds an Unrestricted Practising Certificate issued by the Queensland Law Society.
In 1997 George was accredited by the New South Wales Law Society as a specialist in property law. After relocating to Brisbane in 1999, George’s specialist accreditation subsequently lapsed and is no longer current. However, George continues to maintain a strong interest in property law both in Queensland and in New South Wales.
Today, through his participation in the PallyGroup Australia IP Joint Venture, George is playing an active role in the commercialisation of ground-breaking technology known as the DT103 Engine (patents applied for) which has the capability to apply waste heat harvested from sources such as coal or gas fired power generation plants to create enormous force that can be used to generate virtually emission free electricity.
