Research seminars

The School of Law and Justice conducts an active and successful series of research seminars on a wide variety of legal topics for staff, students, and members of the legal community. Practising lawyers may credit appropriate seminars for CPD points.

The 2018 seminars were held monthly from February to November and consisted of a formal research presentation followed by an open forum style discussion with opportunity to ask questions. The series hosts presenters from within USQ, from other universities in Australia, and from universities overseas.

Practitioners can claim points towards their annual CPD requirements if this seminar is directly related to their professional development.
