Queensland Law Society


Submissions  |  Policy committees  |  Call to parties  |  Policy positions

Advocacy services are among the most important QLS offers to the legal profession and the community.

We have a successful track record of effecting change by bringing members’ opinions to the attention of government, the judiciary and the public through the work of our policy committees. 

Our policy committees are the engine rooms for the Society's policy and advocacy to government. Members from various areas of the legal profession generously contribute their valuable expertise to give advise to the QLS Council on law reform issues and prepare submissions advocating for good law in Queensland.
