Nomination honour for Kate

Kate Warner
A NEW Norfolk woman is among the finalists for the 2015 Tasmanian Australian of the Year Award which will be announced this Thursday. Lawyer and educator Kate Warner has devoted her career to law reform. After graduating with a Bachelor of Laws with Honours in 1970 from the University of Tasmania and subsequently completing her Masters, she embarked on an academic career.

As the first female dean of the law faculty and head of school in the 1990s, Professor Warner has been a role model to many young women ascending the academic ranks. As well as teaching criminal law, Professor Warner has served on many boards and is the director of the Law Reform Institute.

Professor Warner is also a foundation member and chair of the Alcorso Foundation, one of Tasmania’s most highly-regarded private organisations contributing to the arts, environment and social justice in Tasmania.
