The Royal Faculty's AGM was held in the Faculty Hall on Thursday 25 May.
Austin Lafferty demitted office as Dean and Stephen Vallance (of Harper Macleod) was elected as Dean and John Bett (of Lindsays) was elected as Vice Dean.
Two members (Craig Donnelly and Brian Woods) were newly elected to Council.
The new Dean paid tribute to past Deans (particularly Austin Lafferty and Donald Reid) and said that he was looking forward continuing working with fellow Council members and the entire membership body and hoped to strengthen relationships which the Royal Faculty had within the legal community.
