I would like to congratulate Rebecca Treston QC on being elected President of the Bar Association of Queensland.

This prestigious honour is made even more special by the fact Ms Treston was elected unopposed as the Bar’s first female President.

I have enjoyed a constructive working relationship with Rebecca during her time as Vice President and look forward to working with her in the coming year.

I would also like to congratulate incoming Vice President, Thomas Sullivan QC, who I also look forward to working with.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the outgoing President, Sandy Thompson QC, for his leadership at the Bar this year. I have valued his advice and input on law reform in Queensland and in maintaining the high standards of the legal profession.

Attorney-General and Minister for Justice
The Honourable Yvette D'Ath
