Legal assistance and profession regulation investment

The Queensland Government invests in vital frontline justice services, including:

Funds from the Legal Practitioner Interest on Trust Accounts Fund (LPITAF) and Queensland Government budget are invested in the delivery of these services. The source of LPITAF revenue is interest received from trust accounts kept by solicitors in Queensland.

Only organisations that currently receive an allocation through the investment in legal assistance and legal profession regulation systems in Queensland can make applications.

New strategy and investment model

We invest in legal assistance, legal profession regulation, and law library services under a new strategy and investment model. The model includes investment and service delivery strategies to maximise the delivery of frontline services to vulnerable Queenslanders needing legal support.
