Our history

The Legal Services Commission commenced operations as an independent statutory body on 1 July 2004 with the commencement of the Legal Profession Act 2004. Since that time the Commission has witnessed great change and has developed into an effective regulator of the provision of legal services in Queensland.

On this page we provide links and documents relevant to the Commission's history and operations.
