Our Mount Isa Office seeks a skilled Family/Civil Law advocate. This dedicated workplace has expanded by 20% in the past two years, including regularly circuiting into remote communities with strong services in the youth jurisdiction. The successful candidate will be offered an attractive annual remote allowance to secure service continuity and community relationships.

Your experience with Family Law casework and hopefully success with matters to hearings (Family, Domestic Violence, etc), plus Civil Law casework will be highly regarded. An interest in developing skills in Child Protection matters will be well rewarded. Your commitment to social justice and the occasional support for your peers may also provide minor Criminal Law work opportunity – e.g. Duty Lawyer matters in Domestic Violence/Youth matters.
