Parkinson’s NSW Granted Vice Regal Patronage

Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AO QC Governor of New South Wales and Mr Dennis Wilson have graciously agreed to grant Parkinson’s NSW Vice Regal Patronage.

Her excellency is the 39th Governor of New South wales and began her five-year tenure in May 2019.

Prior to her appointment as Governor, Her Excellency enjoyed a long and distinguished law career spanning 43 years, during which time she served as a role model for women in law at both the State and national level.

Appointed Queen’s Counsel in 1989, in 1993 she was made a judge of the Federal Court of Australia, the first woman to sit exclusively in that Court.

In 1996, she achieved the distinction of being the first woman appointed to the New South Wales Court of Appeal and, subsequently, as the first woman to be appointed as its President.
