Cr Joel Silver

Cr Silver lives in Elsternwick, having been a lifelong resident of Glen Eira. For most of that time, his family have been traders on Glen Eira Road. Cr Silver was called to the Victorian Bar in May 2014 and practices predominately in commercial law (focusing on building and construction disputes). Cr Silver has used these skills in several community organisations including Peninsula Community Legal Centre in Bentleigh where he worked as a volunteer lawyer, and the Law Institute of Victoria where he served as Young Lawyers President. Outside his work, Cr Silver enjoys reading up on Australian history, walking his dog Gilly, and spending most (if not all) of his Council allowance on finding Glen Eira’s best coffee shop.

Engaging with the community is Cr Silver’s priority on Council and he encourages residents to be in touch with him, on any matter.

Cr Silver has a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) (The University of Melbourne), Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (Leo Cussen Centre for Law)
