Voice to Parliament

Queensland Law Society (QLS) has spoken up on its Council’s position on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament, ahead of the referendum to be held later this year.

In a statement released today, QLS announced its Council has endorsed the Uluru Statement from the Heart and supports the enshrining of a Voice in Australia’s Constitution.

The Council acknowledged QLS members, legal professionals and the wider community will, in good faith, have differing views about the upcoming referendum on the Voice and respects the right of every individual to draw their own conclusions.

Queensland Law Society has developed a legal information and resources page for its members and the community about the referendum, reconciliation and good law, which can be found here.
