Street died on 21 June 2018 and had a state funeral at the Sydney Opera House in July 2018. In an elegy before 700, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull spoke of his mentor: “As a barrister, he was as eloquent as he was erudite, as formidable as he was fashionable […] Laurence had movie star good looks coupled with a charisma, charm and intellect, a humility, a humanity that swept all before him […] His nickname, ‘Lorenzo the Magnificent’, was well earned.” Turnbull recalled how Street had provided a reference for him to attain a Rhodes Scholarship. Chief Justice of New South Wales Tom Bathurst remembered him as “one of the outstanding jurists of the 20th century.”


In 2007, Street led the review of a decision by Queensland’s Director of Public Prosecution in the 2004 case of an Indigenous Australian death in custody, and conducted the first mediation over the return to Australia of Indigenous Australian remains from the National History Museum in London.

Upholding his mother’s legacy of support for Indigenous Australians, he ascertained the return to Australia of the remains of 17 Indigenous Australians from the National History Museum in London, the first such mediation.
