This year’s Community Legal Centres Queensland (CLCQ) Leadership Forum wrapped up in Brisbane on Thursday, having gathered staff from around the state for education and networking.

The two-day event at Queensland Law Society House included a First Nations Sector Strategy Consultation; a state and national update on Community Legal Centres (CLCs); a Workforce Survey; the CLCQ AGM; and workshops on Cultural and Psychological Safety, and Disaster, Climate and Risk.

A highlight was the launch on Wednesday night by Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath of the Community Legal Centres Queensland Impact Report 2023.

Ms D’Ath said she was pleased to celebrate the achievements of the community legal sector.

“Community Legal Centres provide crucial services, offering free legal advice and representation, and are essential to ensuring access to justice to some of the most vulnerable Queenslanders,” she said.

“I would like to thank each one of our centres for their vital role in providing legal assistance to so many Queenslanders.”


The Impact Report tells the story of Queensland’s 32 Community Legal Centres, which deliver free and accessible services to vulnerable and disadvantaged people.
