    From my understanding, my other lawyer colleagues say that this is possible. The Law Society will check the lawyer for "reference of qualification" (may not be the exact term) but basically as long as the lawyer is competent in the area of law, it may be fine.

    To be fair, my information is QLD to NSW but I would imagine it works both ways. I can't think of a reason why it would be one sided.

    Hope it helps. Thanks for the good question.

    Yes.
    Have a look at section 44 of the Legal Profession Act 2007 (Qld).

    There are a few ifs and buts attached, which vary depending on the kind of work being done,
    but in short and simple - yes.

    Hi Tim,

    Thanks for the reference to the LPA. I haven't covered that course yet at Bond but it's good to get the heads up :)
