Queensland Law Society

Nominate

We encourage you to consider nominating for the FLC. Nominating can help you build your professional profile and pave the way to the next step of your career.

All candidates are running for the role of committee member. There are ten elected positions available as ordinary members of the Committee. At its first meeting in 2021, the FLC will appoint three office bearers (a President, Deputy President and Vice President) from the successfully elected FLC members.

The Committee Charter sets out the role and obligations of the Future Leaders Committee as a whole. In addition, all Committee members are expected to be ambassadors for QLS and to utilise their experience, knowledge and contacts to assist and support the Society to achieve its strategic goals.

QLS supports inclusion and diversity and encourages regional, First Nations and rainbow representative practitioners to apply and shape the future.
