Welcome to the Gold Coast District Law Association
Queensland is home to Australia’s most geographically widespread legal profession. Solicitors practising in Far North Queensland are further from Brisbane than people living in Melbourne. This led to the establishment of 19 District Law Associations which have the opportunity to communicate as often and as closely with QLS as their Brisbane-based colleagues.
The Queensland Law Society recognises the importance of regional solicitors in its efforts to educate and inform the community about their rights and responsibilities under the law.
As Queensland’s second most populous and fastest growing city, the Gold Coast is playing an increasingly influential role in the state and the country’s legal profession. Of the state’s 7,000 solicitors, over 770 practise on the Gold Coast.
