Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2021

Kate Eastman AM SC

It is with great pleasure that New Chambers can announce that Kate Eastman SC has been awarded a Member of the Order of Australia in the 2021 Queen’s Birthday Honours List. Kate has been recognised for significant service to the law, to human rights and to professional services.

Announcing the list, the Governor-General said:

On behalf of all Australians, congratulations to all recipients. Each of these individuals are unique and their story deserves to be shared widely and celebrated.

“Collectively, they speak to who we are as a nation. There are countless examples of selflessness, commitment and dedication. There is diversity and there are examples of exceptional achievement in almost every field imaginable.

“I am pleased that this list includes the highest ever percentage of women (44 per cent) recognised through the General Division of the Order of Australia. It is important that the Order of Australia represents the diversity and strength of Australia – for this to happen we need to ensure outstanding women, members of our multicultural community and First Nations people are nominated by their peers in the community.”

Congratulations to Kate on her well deserved recognition.
