Ralph Bönig has been re-elected to serve another year as president of the Law Society of South Australia.

In his first term as president this year, Bönig was a vocal advocate on a broad range of topics. In particular, he helped raise awareness of the importance of improving the health and wellbeing of lawyers.

"In the upcoming year, I intend to focus on access to affordable justice and assisting members of the public to better understand the way in which the legal system operates, and in doing so, create improved confidence in the legal system and the judiciary," said Bönig, who was re-elected last night (18 October) at the Law Society's annual general meeting.

Commencing his legal career in 1980 at Baker McEwin (now Minter Ellison), Bönig has been extensively involved with the Law Society of South Australia since 1995, having been a member of council since 2005, an executive member since 2006 and holding the roles of treasurer, vice-president and president-elect leading up to his current position as president.

Bönig has specialised in the area of professional indemnity insurance, medical malpractice and public liability for more than 20 years.
