15 April 2020
President Luke Murphy and CEO Rolf Moses announce QLS’ support package for Queensland’s legal profession as it operates through the COVID-19 economy.
This support package—worth $9 million—will provide Queensland practitioners with a:
- 26% subsidy in the annual cost of practising certificates
- 20% subsidy on the base professional indemnity insurance levy rates for practitioners insured through Lexon Insurance Pte Ltd as a result of funding QLS has released from its Law Claims Levy Fund. This has been supported by the Lexon Board and reviewed by Lexon’s actuaries
- 50% subsidy on full membership fees for the Society’s more than 11,000 members
For more details of the support package, please watch the video or go to our COVID-19 support package page.
This support package will not be available to any new applications received from 1 July 2020.
