In September 2016, WLAQ launched the Female Barristers List, documenting female barristers at the private bar in Queensland in order of seniority, and listed under their respective areas of practice.  The list does not feature barristers who are Associate Members, employed barristers or interstate barristers.

This resource is to assist lawyers with equitable briefing practices by finding a female barrister to consider briefing in a specified practice area.  All of the information is generated from the Bar Association of Queensland’s website and we thank them for their assistance.  You can read more about equitable briefing initiatives on our website.

Please note that the list will be updated in February and September of each year. If you choose to download a copy and refer to it rather than the above link, you may not have the most recent version. We suggest that you bookmark this page.

All efforts are made to ensure the accuracy of the list.  If you believe a correction is required, please email
