Join QLS policy committees

As a QLS member, you have the opportunity to join one of our policy committees to participate and advocate for improvements and changes to the law and the legal profession in Queensland. 

The policy committees develop policy positions, guidance materials and submissions on legislative and policy initiatives as well as provide expert advice to Council.

Meetings are usually one hour in length and conducted every eight weeks, each calendar year at Law Society House.

Overview of the role and how to apply

Committee members are expected to attend each meeting in person or by phone, as well as contribute to meeting discussions and matters in between meetings, including relevant policy submissions. 

Our committee members occupy a position of trust, confidence and influence within the Society and with our various stakeholders. It is difficult to gauge the exact time contribution outside of the committee meetings as it is largely dependent on submission work and stakeholder engagement which can vary throughout the year.

Each policy committee is administered by one of our Policy Solicitors who liaises with the Chair on meeting agendas and minutes, meeting times, stakeholder engagements, the drafting of submissions and preparations for public hearings. 

If you are a full, associate or honorary member of QLS, you can apply to join a policy committee at any time. To apply, send a brief email outlining your expression of interest (including interest in the role of Chair or Deputy Chair) and a copy of your CV or professional profile (e.g. LinkedIn profile) noting your skills and expertise.  

Your expression of interest is considered by the Committee and the Executive Committee of the QLS Council which makes a determination on all committee appointments.

We encourage interested members to review the QLS Policy Committee Charter before submitting an application.
