Prior to the relaunch of our Awards in 2007 as a biennial event, the last occasion these awards were made was at our 50th Anniversary dinner in 2002.

Recipients included Justice Jennifer Boland, Janet Coombs, Anna Katzmann SC, Chrissa Loukas and Justice Mahla Pearlman. A Lifetime Achievement award was also given on that occasion to Justice Mary Gaudron.
