Qld Law Group believes in giving something back

It is important that the Qld Law Group is a good law firm but it’s just as important for us to be a good contributing member of the community and to use our skills and resources to help make a difference.

The Qld Law Group is proud that it supports charities and community groups, proud that this part of the Qld Law Group Difference does make a real difference. Looking at some of the groups we help may encourage you to do that just like many of our staff and clients do in conjunction with us.

Kokoda Challenge

The Spirit of Kokoda – mateship, endurance, courage and sacrifice was forged by the Australian troops from the 39th and 42nd Militia on the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea during WWII.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Australia is a land of great opportunity but unfortunately those opportunities are not open to all Australians on the same terms.  Sadly, in today’s world, there still exists a gap between the welfare, education and vocational opportunities open to Indigenous Australians as compared to other Australians.

The Qld Law Group recognises its social responsibility to help close this gap and to assist it to stay focussed on this task it has prepared a Reconciliation Action Plan which was approved by Reconciliation Australia on 29 March 2012.  We are very proud of our Reconciliation Action Plan and to read it, please click here.

We would encourage others to develop Reconciliation Action Plans for their businesses and organisations and for further information, please click here or contact us and we would be happy to provide some guidance.
