The Queensland disciplinary bodies

The Legal Profession Act 2007 (the Act) authorises the Legal Services Commission Queensland to initiate and prosecute discipline applications in either of two disciplinary bodies - the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) in relation to more serious matters and the Legal Practice Committee (LPC) in relation to less serious matters. 

For more information about these two bodies, their functions and powers see:

You may also find it helpful in learning about the disciplinary bodies to refer to some or all of the Fact Sheets the Commission has published; in particular Fact Sheet 6 - Disciplinary hearings (PDF, 76.0 KB).
