Work for us

Legal Aid Queensland is an independent statutory authority that provides legal help to financially and socially disadvantaged Queenslanders. We are jointly funded by the state government for civil and criminal law matters and the federal government for family law matters.

We are the state's largest criminal law practice and employ over 600 staff in 14 offices located throughout Queensland.

We offer attractive employment conditions, including:

  • salary packaging
  • paid parental leave and flexible working arrangements
  • structured professional development in conjunction with performance management
  • study leave for approved work-related courses.

We are currently not conducting any graduate recruitment or vacation clerkship programs.

We don't offer volunteer work opportunities or work experience directly to the public. Legal Aid Queensland participates in a number of university based work experience programs. People interested in these programs, are encouraged to contact the law faculty at their university.
