Christian Lawyers Society

The purpose of the Christian Lawyers Society (Qld) is the promotion of the Christian religion, particularly as it relates to the legal profession. Our constitution is available here.


CLS events are held for the profession and students. Many CLS members also connect with groups such as:

  • The City Bible Forum  (directed by CLS Chaplain Glenn Hoehnberg) – regular forums and prayer events for working professionals; and
  • CLEAR “Christian Legal Education Aid and Research” – internships and mission trips (for lawyers and students).

See the links page for a number of other organisations.


Access a number of resources to support you in your practice, study, or life balance.
