The 2017 Community Legal Centres Queensland Conference is taking place 8 to 9 May 2017 at the Mantra Legends Hotel, Surfers Paradise.

The Community Legal Centres Queensland conference is the premier event in any community legal centre calendar. Conference delegates will have the opportunity to meet with a diverse range of people including centre directors, social workers, lawyers, volunteers and decision makers.

The conference will provide delegates with an opportunity to develop and strengthen their professional skills, increase their knowledge and network with people working in the field.

There will be a variety of presentations, panel discussions and workshops designed for both organisations and individuals focusing on a broad range of issues relevant to community legal centre staff and the wider legal community. Topics this year range from communicating with Indigenous clients, new developments in legal technology through to evaluating services, plus much more.

The conference will take place over two days and delegates have the opportunity to register for the full conference or just one day. Staff or volunteers who work at a community legal centre can come at a discounted price.

A highlight of the conference will be the Conference Dinner, to be held at the Surfers Paradise Life Saving Club on Monday 8 May from 6:30pm to 9:30pm. This is one of the most popular events on the conference calendar and is always well attended. The ticket price includes a two-course sit-down dinner as well as beer, wine and soft drinks.
