Community Legal Centres Queensland Conference

The 2018 Community Legal Centres Queensland Conference is being held at the Oakwood Hotel & Apartments Brisbane, 15 Ivory Lane, Brisbane.

The event takes place 8 to 9 March 2018.  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 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.

Registrations for the conference are now closed.
