Practising Certificate Renewal
2023/24 Practising Certificate and Membership Renewal is now closed. Applications for renewal of practising certificates are made under section 50 of the Legal Profession Act 2007 (Act). All legal practitioners in Queensland, apart from those employed as government legal officers, are required to hold a current practising certificate (section 24 of the Act).
Practitioners can renew their QLS membership at the same time as renewing their practising certificate. Find out more about the Benefits of a QLS membership.
Professional Standards (Limitation of Liability) Scheme
Practitioners who are members of the Society and are associated with a law practice automatically participate in the QLS Professional Standards (Limitation of Liability) Scheme unless they apply for an exemption. Before starting renewals, organisations should make sure employees know whether to apply for exemption from the Scheme. If they do not seek exemption on their membership renewal form, they will be charged the administration fee for the Scheme.
