Media Statement

Queensland Law Society will not be commenting on a letter sent to Society President Michael Fitzgerald by Chief Justice Tim Carmody.

Mr Fitzgerald says Queensland Law Society Council has resolved that the matters raised in the letter should be discussed privately.

“We are disappointed current issues are being aired publicly, and in line with Queensland Law Society Council’s view, I will not be making comments to the media on the issue,” he says.

“I will be engaging in some frank discussions with a view to seeking resolution of issues. Those discussions will be private.”
