Established in 1968, the Queensland Law Reform Commission has played an important role in shaping the development of laws in Queensland.
The commission reviews have covered a range of technical legal, social justice, and justice-related issues, some landmark reforms to Queensland laws.
And, these include the laws relating to trust and trustees, property law, succession law, and the administration of Estates of Deceased People, bail law, decision-making for adults with impaired capacity and, most recently, termination of pregnancy and voluntary assisted dying.
These reforms have had an important impact on the lives of Queensland people. The Commission's a unique place to work because it is an independent statutory body.
And, having the opportunity to do those things has been very rewarding. And it's what keeps me working here year after year.
