CPD Doesn’t have to be a drag

Does the end of the CPD year fill you with dread? Tired of late nights cramming webinars to make up your Continuing Professional Development points? Do you yearn for CPD events that are interesting, engaging, even fun?

Welcome to CPD doesn’t have to be a drag, the first of a monthly seminar series for legal professionals, law students and fellow law nerds supporting the LGBTI Legal Service.

Join your colleagues and community for a fun and engaging legal seminar and drag trivia night at The Wickham.

Strutting out from the standard CPD seminar format, this event will see two engaging expert lawyers let loose on a legal topic of interest to LGBTIQA+ people and allies. Enjoy a lively Q&A emceed by comedian MJ O’Neill and drag queen Roxanne Redacted, followed by a round of drag trivia.

Our first event will feature two human rights experts discussing expanded protections for LGBTIQA+ people coming into effect on 29 April and proposed reforms to the Anti-Discrimination Act to protect drag performers:

  • Benedict Coyne, barrister and pro bono counsel on the ‘Drag Queen Storytime’ vilification case (Valkyrie & Hill v Shelton)
  • Heather Corkhill, Principal Policy Officer from the Queensland Human Rights Commission

Tickets are limited – register now to avoid disappointment.

The ticket price covers catering, event booking fees and a contribution for our incredible performers.

All profits go to support the vital work of the LGBTI Legal Service, a queer and peer led community legal centre that provides advice and advocacy for disadvantaged LGBTIQA+ Queenslanders.
