Queensland Law Society


The policy committees of the QLS develop policies and responses to government on proposed legislative amendments and consultation material by reviewing the proposals, discussing its impact on all potential stakeholders, and proposing any suggested amendments to address problems. They provide a forum to consider practical problems and also disseminate awareness information to members.

Membership is voluntary and is reviewed every two years by the President and Council. This system allows the Council to select from the widest possible QLS membership to ensure an appropriate age, gender and experience mix.
