Alice Bitmead

Alice graduated from a Bachelor of Laws (Hons) and a Bachelor of International Studies from the University of Adelaide in 2016 and was admitted to practice as a solicitor and barrister in 2017.


After two years as a Judge’s Associate at the District Court of South Australia, in 2019 Alice began working as a lawyer on the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. In this role, Alice conducted investigations exposing serious negligence and misconduct at aged care facilities and instructed Counsel Assisting during public hearings held around the country. She would also travel to regional areas to meet and interview vulnerable older Australians receiving care and their families including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, LGBTIQ+ people and those living with disabilities, and prepare them to give evidence during public hearings.


Before coming to the Working Women’s Centre, Alice spent three years as a Federal Prosecutor at the Commonwealth Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. In this role, she prosecuted contested and uncontested summary and major indictable Commonwealth offences including online child sexual abuse, tax and social security fraud, drug importation, and carriage service offences related to stalking and domestic violence. As an experienced criminal prosecutor, Alice has appeared in the Magistrates Court, District Court and Supreme Court in metropolitan Adelaide as well as regional circuits in Port Augusta and Mount Gambier.


Since joining the Working Women’s Centre, Alice has expanded her love of employment and industrial law. As a fierce and tireless advocate, she has dedicated her legal career to championing the rights and personal safety of all, particularly women and children. As a committed feminist unionist, she is also a vocal advocate against workplace sexual harassment.


When she’s not fighting for the best possible outcome for her clients, Alice likes to potter around her vegetable garden with her dogs, knit, and watch garbage television.
