Making Rights Real

The 2019 Community Legal Centres Queensland Conference is being held at the Hotel Grand Chancellor, Brisbane.

This year, the theme of the conference is Making Rights Real.

The event takes place 21 to 22 March 2019.  The conference is a fantastic opportunity to meet with a diverse range of people from across the state involved in community legal centres including centre directors and lawyers, social workers, volunteers and decision makers.

There will be a wide variety of panel discussions, presentations and workshops relevant to both the community legal sector and the wider legal community. The final program is now available - DOWNLOAD HERE!

The conference provides delegates with the chance to network with other people in the field, broaden and strengthen their skills and enhance and develop their knowledge.
