Tessa Sullivan

Lawyer and Officer of the Supreme Court of Victoria

As a lawyer and officer of the Supreme Court of Victoria, Tessa has worked in the areas of immigration, human rights plus family and criminal law, and is the first Thai-Chinese National to be elected into Government. Her advocacy in the #MeToo era and campaigns against violence against women has made her the ‘face’ of the movement in Australia (she single-handedly changed the legislation in local government to acknowledge and prevent such offences).
