The Society has applied to the Professional Standards Council of Queensland for approval of a new Professional Standards Scheme to commence on 1 July 2022 and as part of the process of that approval the Scheme is now out for Public Consultation.
The proposed scheme maintains all of the existing measures for the improvement of professional standards of the profession and the protection of consumers. The new scheme provides for the first time for participation in the Scheme by Incorporated Legal Practices.
More information on the consultation and how to make submissions either to the Society or the Councils is available on the Public Consultation: QLS Professional Standards ( Limitation of Liability) Scheme 2022 - 2027 page.
The final date for receipt of submissions is 6 October 2021.
