Brisbane family lawyer becomes A-G in 3 days

New Attorney Cameron Dick

With the election of the Bligh government on Saturday, Queensland Premier Anna Bligh put her stamp on the new ministry by appointing Cameron Dick as the new Attorney-General. Cameron has probably created a new record, having been elected all of three days!

A family law barrister by training, and someone who until recently was a tenant above my office, Cameron’s loss will be missed, and no doubt as Attorney it will be to the greater good of society.

Although I applaud Cameron’s swift elevation, it is with some sadness that he takes over from previous Attorney-General Kerry Shine, someone who has been seen as effective and competent.

Cameron is not the first Brisbane family lawyer to become Attorney. Probably the best known is Matt Foley, one time social worker, poet and family law barrister, who on retirement from politics has returned to the bar.
