Queensland Law Society

If I have overseas qualifications but no practising certificate, how can I describe myself?

The Ethics Committee of the Queensland Law Society recommends that lay associates in Queensland who are admitted in an overseas jurisdiction may be held out under one of the following titles as appropriate to their seniority and experience:

  • Associate; Senior Associate; Senior Consultant etc (Admitted in [country of admission] and not admitted in Australia).

The full descriptor is to be used rather than accompanied by an asterisk or footnote.
