Vale Katrina Dawson

Tue Dec 16 2014

It is with a heavy heart and deep sorrow that I must inform members of the New South Wales Bar Association that Katrina Dawson, of 8 Selborne Chambers, passed away in the early hours of this morning. Katrina, together with two other members of the NSW Bar, were held as hostages during the incident at the Lindt Café in Phillip Street, Sydney, yesterday.

Katrina was one of our best and brightest barristers who will be greatly missed by her colleagues and friends at the NSW Bar. She was a devoted mother of three children, and a valued member of her floor and of our bar community. Our thoughts are with her family at this time, including her brother, Sandy Dawson of Banco Chambers.

BarCare is available for any members of the NSW Bar Association, their families and staff, who require assistance through this difficult time. Bar Care can be contacted via Ph:(02) 9331 3872 or pjohnston@barcare.org

Out of respect to Katrina's family, the NSW Bar Association will be making no further comment at this time.
