Amanda Jane Stoker (born 30 October 1982) is an Australian politician and lawyer who has been a Liberal member of the Australian Senate representing Queensland since 21 March 2018, when she was appointed as a replacement for the Senate place of retiring Attorney-General George Brandis.
Stoker began her career as a barrister in Brisbane. She served as a Commonwealth prosecutor, as well as a judge's associate to Philip McMurdo in the Supreme Court of Queensland and to Ian Callinan in the High Court of Australia.
Leading up to the 2009 state election, Stoker sought pre-selection for the electoral district of Cleveland, which she lost to Mark Robinson who went on to win the seat. She was a Senate candidate with the LNP at the 2013 federal election.
On 10 March 2018, members of the Liberal National Party of Queensland (LNP) elected Stoker to succeed high-profile cabinet member George Brandis as a Senator for Queensland; she is the party's only female senator from that state. The Parliament of Queensland appointed Stoker to the casual vacancy left by Brandis on 21 March 2018 and she was sworn in as a Senator the following day.
Immediately prior to her appointment to the Senate, Stoker was a member of Level 27 Chambers, a sessional academic at Central Queensland University and Vice-President of the Women Lawyers Association of Queensland.
