Queensland Law Society provides a dynamic hub for Queensland’s legal community and seeks to engage actively with its members and the public to provide leadership, practical solutions and reliable support.
We represent and promote more than 8,500 legal professionals, increase community understanding of the law, help protect the rights of individuals and advise the community about the many benefits solicitors can provide.
Queensland Law Society assists legal practitioners to continually improve their services, while monitoring their practices to ensure they meet the high standards set for the profession in Queensland. And we assist the public by advising government on improvements to laws affecting Queenslanders, and working to improve their access to the law.
We hold specific statutory responsibilities, including the issuing of practising certificates, maintaining solicitors’ records, regulating the operation of solicitors’ trust accounts and protecting the public.
Queensland Law Society is incorporated under the Legal Profession Act 2007, and is governed by a council elected by our members.
