Advice and practice support
Professional guidance and support
We offer guidance and support with building your practice, and provide access to complimentary personal counselling and support.
The Practice Support service involves a one-on-one consultation with an Ethics Solicitor to support members in setting up a new practice or managing a recently established one, in an efficient, practical and ethical manner.
The QLS Ethics and Practice Centre provides ethics guidance and advice. QLS members can also seek assistance to request Non-Binding Ethics Rulings for disputes between practitioner members over ethical matters.
Solicitors who have received an official notification requesting they provide information to either the Legal Services Commission or Queensland Law Society as the result of a complaint investigation or trust account matter can receive up to six hours of free legal advice from experienced independent solicitors.
We proactively approach the courts on behalf of members, with assured confidentiality and anonymity, to follow up on delayed judgment and encourage prompt completion and delivery of that judgment.
