Navigating together towards a new future

“Regional, rural and small law firms have advantages over the bigger law firms. Often, they just don’t know it, or how to make the most of these advantages.”

This one day, in person, Future Ready Regional and Rural Legal Conference will bring together innovative legal practitioners from across south-western Queensland, law associations as well as entrepreneurial businesses servicing regional and rural practices. The conference will cover the impacts upon regional and rural law firms including engaging with technology in the courts and intergenerational change.

The conference will also speak to research funded by the Queensland Law Society on the Impacts of COVID, technology and intergenerational change on law practice.

Topics include:

  • Accessing business resources to build innovative regional and rural legal practice.
  • Identifying challenges and opportunities associated with regional and rural practice. 
  • Replenishing the profession through intergenerational change.
  • Accessing the courts from the regions through e-access. (Including e-litigation and e-discovery)

Queen’s Arms Chambers was founded in 2019 by six barristers who had strong ties to the Darling Downs and were each loyal to the regions.

Whilst the Darling Downs has a long and proud tradition in the law for over 100 years; it never had a chamber group. That had to change.

The Downs & South West Queensland Law Association was originally established in its present form in 1937. In fact, the Association is a little piece of history all on its own, as it is the oldest Law Association of Queensland. The Association is said to have been established in the late 19th Century; however, fell off the radar in the early 20th Century. Eventually, the Association was restarted in 1937 and has remained in operation since that time.

RRR Digital Treechange Program

The ‘Digital Treechange’ initiative aims to overcome the ‘barrier of the unknown’ for lawyers considering RRR practice. Rather than having to relocate  before knowing much about the participating legal workplace, the work, the area and the lifestyle; the ‘Digital Treechange’ initiative provides for Candidates to work remotely for a Participant, for a defined trial period. This allows the Candidate to get a sense of the work and workplace prior to relocating and, conversely, gives the Participant an opportunity to trial the Candidate beforehand.
