The Queensland Legal Assistance Forum (QLAF) is here to help member organisations address Queensland legal assistance issues.
We do this by facilitating cooperative working relationships with other legal service providers in rural and regional Queensland.
What is QLAF?
The Australian Legal Assistance Forum (ALAF) was established to enable member organisations to consider and address Australian legal assistance issues in a cooperative way and to make recommendations on those issues in a coordinated fashion.
In November 2004, Legal Aid Queensland hosted a National Legal Aid Congress in Brisbane. One of the recommendations coming out of the Congress was that legal assistance forums should be established in all States throughout Australia and that those forums would fill a greater coordination role in strategic planning for legal aid service delivery in each State.
As a result of those recommendations, QLAF was established and held its first meeting in Brisbane on 7 February 2006.
