Queensland Law Society


Queensland Law Society (QLS) Council elections are held every two years in October.  The next election will take place in October 2019.


Members can nominate for a number of positions, and can even nominate for more than one position:

  • President
  • Deputy President (automatically becomes President in the second year)
  • Vice President
  • Ordinary member of Council (eight positions available)

Full members from across Queensland representing different types and areas of practice are encouraged to put themselves forward for a seat on Council.


All full members are encouraged to vote and have their say in the future of the profession. It is everyone’s opportunity to take an active role in the governance of Queensland legal practitioners and help build a Council team that promotes and advances the solicitors’ branch of the profession.

In the 2017 Election, voting opened 4 October 2017 and closed at 4pm AEST on 16 October 2017. Results were declared from 17 October 2017.

Historically, QLS members have turned out in encouraging numbers to vote in their Council. Your vote is your voice, so make sure yours is heard at the next election.
