The Esteemed Julia Stone CJACJ is an Emberitian lawyer and academic who currently serves as the Chief Justice of Auroran Court of Justice.

She was born in Aura, Emberwood Coast, on 15 October 1960 to Alexandrina Stone (née Malcolm) and Julian Stone from Rosalica and Asilica respectively. Her mother was a carpenter and her father was a nurse. They remained married for 8 years and divorced when she was 7 years old. For much of her life, she lived with her father. She attended Foxborough Elementary School from 1965 to 1970, then Palmouth Middle School from 1970 to 1974 followed by Caster Ilvermore High School from 1974 to 1978. For most her childhood, she was considered astute and hardworking, but she often got into fights with other girls and was often vilified for being "different". From 1978 to 1979, she did a post-secondary course to gain her International School Leaving Certificate under Shiro Academy.

She was admitted to the University of Aura in 1980 and completed her Bachelor of Laws degree in 1984. She started a Master of Laws degree at the same university in 1985. In 1986, she started a Doctor of Laws degree at the University of Rockport which she completed in 1989. In 1990, she started her articles of clerkship at Blythe Chambers. In 1992, she wrote the Emberitian Bar Association examinations and was admitted as an advocate (barrister). Starting in 1992, she was admitted as an Advocate of the Rylidian District Local Court. She moved to Attwell Chambers and started cases at the North District Capitol Court in 1996.

In 1997, she got her Silks and was admitted as an advocate of the High Magistrate. She continued working as an advocate at the High Magistrate until 2008. In that time, she returned to her alma mater, the University of Aura, and was appointed a Senior Lecturer where she taught International Law. From 2009 to 2014 she was appointed to a full-time academic position as a Professor of Law at the University of Lambertupol, in Lambertupol, Caltharus, Great Morstaybishlia. She was appointed Dean of the School of Law at the University of Akhalibisi, Tuvaltastan. In her academic career, she became known as one of the greatest legal minds on the continent where she published over 80 papers and 5 books.

At the end of the Auroran-Pacific War, she was invited by the Prime Minister of Great Morstaybishlia, Walter Johannes, to assist in the drafting of the Treaty of Sani Bursil whereby the Ribenstadt Pact formally surrendered and Ethalria and Uspalria were partitioned. She was invited by Locklyn Le Roy, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Oan Isles to the Auroran Reunification Summit to help draft the Treaty of Aura (whereby the United Nations of the Auroran Continent was established) specifically in matters relating to the Auroran Court of Justice. Ambassador of the Oan Isles to the UNAC, Teoti Mohinahina, nominated her to the position of Chief Justice of the Auroran Court of Justice. She was invested on 5 June 2018 as the first and incumbent Chief Justice.
