How to enrol

QLS delivers the PMC in two streams to address the focus of practitioners from varying legal practice sizes. The presenters and the content of the two streams differ in certain relevant respects. Practitioners are therefore strongly encouraged to enrol in the practice focus stream which is most suitable to their current, and intended, legal practice needs.

To enrol, choose the right stream for you and click on a suitable workshop date. Or to express your interest for future workshop dates, contact Events Management on 07 3842 5806 or events@qls.com.au and we will notify you when registrations open.

If you wish to keep your enrolment confidential, please update your details by contacting the QLS Records team at records@qls.com.au before completing your enrolment.

Sole Practitioner to Small Practice Focus

The sole practitioner to small practice stream is tailored for practitioners who currently practise in, or intend to practise in, a legal practice of less than 20 practising certificate holders. This course is recommended for those who anticipate they will retain significant hands-on and day-to-day responsibility for practice management and administrative functions such as practice finance, trust accounting, marketing, business development, information technology, staff management and more.

Medium to Large Practice Focus

The medium to large practice stream is tailored for practitioners who currently practise in, or intend to practise in, a legal practice with 20 or more practising certificate holders. The workshop is recommended for those who anticipate they will delegate significant responsibility for management and administrative functions such as finance, trust accounting, marketing and knowledge management to professional managers or other colleagues.

Eligibility

The PMC is open to all solicitors admitted in Australia. You do not need to be currently working as a Solicitor or hold a practising certificate to enrol in the course.

Non-legal practice directors of Incorporated Legal Practices are not eligible to enrol in a PMC as they are not eligible to hold a Principal Practising Certificate. The legal practitioner must be a director of an Incorporated Legal Practice to hold a Principal Practising Certificate.

Regional discount

Attendance at the three day face-to-face workshop is a mandatory requirement for completion of the PMC. As such, a discount is offered to QLS members in regional Queensland to offset travel costs.

Enrolment confirmation

You are considered to be enrolled upon receipt of the course registration fee.

Enrolment will be confirmed via email and course materials will be issued three weeks prior to the start of the course.

This will be sent to your preferred email address according to QLS records.
