Governance changes

Update – At Queensland Law Society’s 85th Annual General Meeting, members voted on governance changes to register Queensland Law Society as a company limited by guarantee, and change the Council governance model. Both motions passed. Members:

  • Approved 3a. Registration as company limited by guarantee
  • Rejected the motion raised regarding “nine elected members and three appointed members”
  • Approved 3b. Changes to governance structure of QLS in its original form.

We thank all members who came to the AGM, and the hundreds who sent in proxies, for participating in the process.

The member-endorsed changes will modernise the way Queensland Law Society operates and adjust the Council structure to best meet the future needs of the profession.

The next step towards change is continuing our dialogue with the Attorney-General regarding the changes.

We will keep you informed of these matters as they progress.
