This year’s first edition of Proctor introduces Queensland Law Society 2017 president Christine Smyth, who outlines her agenda for the year and explains the ‘what, who and why’ of her objectives. The February issue also looks at how changes introduced by the Mental Health Act 2016 will mean better outcomes for mentally ill offenders in the Magistrates Court from next month. There’s a two-part report on elder abuse, including a request seeking practitioner feedback and a novel approach to raising community awareness. An extensive news section provides the latest details on what’s been happening in the profession, and all the regular features return to provide readers with the latest case law and information on specific areas of practice.
