About Queensland Law Society

Queensland Law Society is a dynamic hub for the legal community and the regulator of the legal profession in Queensland. We actively engage with members and the public to promote good law, support good lawyers, and work for the public good.

We provide leadership, practical solutions and reliable support to more than 13,000 legal professionals in Queensland. We ensure that legal professionals are appropriately qualified and licensed to uphold the rule of law in Queensland. And we increase community understanding of the law, help to protect the rights of individuals, and advise the community about the many benefits of engaging a solicitor.

QLS is committed to promoting diversity of thought within our organisation and the profession, and true equity among our workforce, regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity or sexual preference.

We know there are many within the profession and our society as a whole who seek a career with purpose. We also know that work is just one element of your life, and many strive for better work-life balance. Women – and men – can achieve both by working for the legal profession at QLS; advocating for good law, supporting good lawyers and working for the public good. With over 25% of our workforce working flexibly, we have been able to facilitate career changes while empowering our people to continue to contribute in the legal profession; a criminal lawyer has become a legal professional development specialist, a personal injuries lawyer has become a policy solicitor, a commercial lawyer has become an in-house solicitor.
