Law Society of Western Australia president Hylton Quail has listed tackling depression and anxiety as priority areas in his second term.
Quail will serve another term as president of the Law Society of WA next year, after being re-elected during the society's annual council elections.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my first year as president and have achieved most, but not all, of the goals I set myself at the start of the year," Quail said.
"My 2011 agenda includes introducing new strategies to address anxiety and depression, as well as ensuring that the Society continues to have a strong state voice both here in WA and interstate as national regulation of the legal profession looks closer than ever to being adopted in the other states."
Announced at the Society's annual general meeting this week, others re-elected to the council include Greg McIntyre SC, Steven Penglis, Judith Fordham, Pamela Hass, Matthew Keogh and Dr. Eric Heenand, while Anthony Kay, Cameron Syme, Nicholas van Hattem and Lana Paxman were appointed as new council members.
They will join returning council members including senior vice president Dr. Christopher Kendall, vice president Craig Slater, Denis McLeod, Konrad de Kerloy, John Prior, Graham Goerke, Belinda Lonsdale, Simon Creek and immediate past president Dudley Stow.
