Upcoming courses

QLS delivers the PMC in two streams to address the focus of practitioners from varying legal practice sizes. However a legal practitioner may apply to attend any PMC as the content covered remains the same.

Sole Practitioner to Small Practice Focus

The sole practitioner and small practice focus course is tailored to recognise that small to sole practices have a different focus and approach on finance, business development, information technology and people management. This course is recommended for those who anticipate they will retain significant hands-on and day-to-day responsibility for management and administrative functions such as finance, marketing, knowledge management and more.

Medium to Large Practice Focus

The medium and large practice focus course is tailored for practitioner who intend to stay within a medium to large firm environment and will face different challenges in running their practice. However, they are still running a practice within a large practice and the core content is the same with both PMCs.  The workshop is recommended for those who anticipate they will delegate significant responsibility for management and administrative functions such as finance, marketing and knowledge management to professional managers or other colleagues.

Eligibility

Non-directors of Incorporated Legal Practices are not eligible for a Principal Practising Certificate. The legal practitioner must be a director of an Incorporated Legal Practice to hold a Principal Practising Certificate.

Regional rebate

Attendance at the three day face-to-face workshop is a mandatory requirement for completion of the PMC. As such, we offer a rebate is offered to QLS members in regional Queensland to offset travel costs.
