This year marks 150 years since the foundation of Queensland's first law society at its first meeting on 7 August 1873.

The Society’s founding vision was to be a force for good by protecting the public from dishonourable conduct among solicitors, while promoting the dissemination of legal knowledge, and advising the legislature on amendments to laws.

While the profession has grown and changed immeasurably over the past 150 years, this purpose—Good Law - Good Lawyers - Public Good—remains unchanged.

A force for good: past, present and future reflects on the past, present and future of QLS, and celebrates the achievements of the Society and its members that have helped shape the law in Queensland.
