On 12 July 2022, full members were notified of a vacancy on the Queensland Law Society Council.
As less than 10% of full members made written application by 9 August 2022 requisitioning an election, Council may appoint a full member to Council pursuant to the Society Rules.
The Society invited members to submit their expression of interest and between 20 July 2022 and 9 August 2022, the Society received 18 expressions of interest. The calibre and experience of all candidates is to be commended.
Following a review and selection process by the Council Sub-Committee, Council has appointed Justin McDonnell as Councillor effective 16 September 2022. Justin’s term concludes 31 December 2023. Congratulations Justin.
