The journey from lawyer to Supreme Court Judge

Her Honour Larissa Strk, Supreme Court of Western Australia

It was our privilege to host her Honour Justice Larissa Strk and learn about her remarkable journey from lawyer to Judge at the Supreme Court of Western Australia. It was enlightening to hear about values, challenges, leadership and contributions to our society as the 10th women appointed to the Supreme Court. 

Her Honour provided an amazing insight into role models, mentors, champions and community services. As well as hard work, the ripple effect of Croatian migrants over the past 165 years and challenges in any profession.


In attendance we had from Croatia – the Mayor City of Split Ivica Puljak, Pia Turcinov AM, Andrew Vlahov OAM, Michael Sutherland OAM. Special thanks to Raymond Pecotic, our MC as well as questions that provided insights about her Honours experiences, perspectives and pathways.
