Led by the General Counsel, the Legal Services unit is responsible for the delivery of legal services to the Vice-Chancellor, executive management and other key decision makers at UQ. Legal Services enables the University to achieve its strategic objectives, while at the same time protecting UQ’s interests. 

Legal Services is the University’s sole legal provider. All legal services (including external advice from external law firms or barristers) are delivered by or through Legal Services.

We play a key role in UQ’s overall corporate governance framework, by proactively identifying and managing current and emerging legal issues, risks and priorities.

Legal Services is comprised of:

  • General team which provides legal advice on a broad range of areas, including commercial and contract transactions, property and projects, dispute resolution and litigation, misconduct and IT matters.
  • Research team which provides legal advice on research contracts and other issues that impact on research activities.
  • Copyright team which provides advice and training on copyright and related matters.
