The University of Western Australia is proud that another of its graduates, Dr Malcolm McCusker AO QC, is to be the next Governor of Western Australia.
As announced by the Western Australian Premier today, Dr McCusker will take over on 1 July from His Excellency Dr Ken Michael, also a UWA graduate.
UWA Vice-Chancellor Professor Alan Robson said Dr McCusker was an outstanding choice as Governor. The recipient of a UWA Honorary Degree of Doctor of Laws, Dr McCusker was well known for his commitment to championing justice in the community.
"Dr McCusker exemplifies the University's principle of service to the community. In addition to his legal interests, Dr McCusker has been involved in many community causes and with his wife Tonya (also a UWA Law graduate), he is well-known as a leading philanthropist."
