The Indigenous Lawyers Association of Queensland Inc ("ILAQ") was founded in 2007. Our current membership consists of members of the judiciary, barristers, solicitors and law students from across Queensland.
ILAQ assists indigenous lawyers and law students by providing ongoing support and advice through their career.
Our primary objective is to increase the number of indigenous Australians practising in the legal profession in Queensland.
