Queensland Law Society has joined much of the state in welcoming the historic passing of the Human Rights Bill 2018 in Queensland Parliament on the 27 February 2019.
QLS President Bill Potts said that discussions around human rights legislation had been around for a long time, with very intense debate throughout.
“We applaud the Parliament on passing this Bill, and throughout the debate, our solicitors put forth both for and against views,” he said.
“QLS formed a working group twice, with experts in the area firstly to discuss the proposal and then a second time to review the Bill and make relevant submissions.”
