Become a Member
Types of Membership
You will become a member of the first community legal service in Queensland to cater specifically to our LGBTIQA+ community. You will also be able to attend our AGM and offer your thoughts into our future direction.
Our student membership is offers the same benefits as our Standard Membership but at a discounted rate for anyone who holds a valid student ID card.
Becoming a corporate sponsor allows you to pledge annual financial sponsorship to the LGBTI Legal Service and commit funds to support specific projects of our Service. A corporate membership also assists the Service to fund public education programs for the benefit of the LGBTIQA+ community.
The majority of the LGBTI Legal Service’s staff – from solicitors and barristers to members of the community and law students – are volunteers. We are grateful for all donations and grants that help to keep the Service running to provide assistance and information to the community.
Volunteer with Us
Lawyers can volunteer to assist at our clinic. Currently, our individual volunteer lawyers are allocated to our evening clinic from 6pm to 8pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. However, there is flexibility to assist at times that suit you. All appointments are conducted via phone.
Law firms can assist by providing volunteer lawyers for our clinic, assisting with our case work or helping us with our law reform activities. Firm volunteer lawyers at our clinic are provided flexibility to provide advice to clients over the phone at mutually suitable times.
Students can volunteer at our West End Office, assisting with our clinics, case work and law reform activities, as well as providing administrative support.
