Law Society welcomes appointments of new Magistrates

The Law Society of Western Australia congratulates barristers and solicitors Brian Mahon and Mark Millington, who have been appointed as Magistrates of the Magistrates Court of Western Australia.

The appointments of Mr Mahon and Mr Millington follow the resignation and retirement of two magistrates from the Bunbury Magistrates Court.

Law Society President Elizabeth Needham said, “The Law Society is pleased to see the State Government taking action to ensure courts in the South West are adequately resourced.

“In a recent interview on ABC Radio’s WA Regional Drive programme, I expressed the importance of appointing these Magistrates to the Bunbury Magistrates Court. The appointments should help to improve access to justice for the residents of Bunbury and the surrounding region.”
