Patrina MacPherson

Throughout her career, Petrina has successfully combined her two loves of law and laughter and is a unique public speaker who is able to put a comedic spin on just about anything.

During the day Petrina is a mild mannered lawyer who specialises in Construction Law. At night she is a stand-up comedian who has worked across Queensland. Petrina was a state finalist in the RAW Comedy Competition and she has competed in, and most importantly won, many corporate comedy debates. Petrina’s years of experience corporate comedy means she has the keen insight of knowing how and when to push the line without crossing it. She does not believe the myth that women aren’t as funny as men and is living proof that any such suggestion is just nonsense.

While comedy is where Petrina shines, she regularly called upon to speak on serious topics such as professional legal ethics, matters concerning the building and construction industry in Queensland and non-conforming building products.

Petrina is a member of the QLS Ethics Committee and tutors in Construction Law at the University of Queensland.
