Industry/ Community needs

Justices of the Peace (Qualified) and Commissioners for Declarations carry out many judicial and administrative duties as "gate-keepers" of the Queensland justice system. The role of Justice of the Peace (Qualified)(JP (Qual)) and Commissioner for Declarations, (C.dec) is voluntary, with a constant demand for services across the state.

As part of their appointment, JPs (Qual) and C.decs require a through and current understanding of the powers and duties required to accurately serve members of their community. This capacity is critical to ensure that newly appointed JPs (Qual) and C.decs are competent to undertake the role, perform their duties correctly and consistently and reduce the risk of litigation against State and person.

As a JP (Qual) or C.dec, the community expects you to be constantly aware that you are participating in the administration of justice in Queensland, while performing the functions of your office.

Your position as JP (Qual) or C.dec indicates that you are trusted to act responsibly. The community will expect you to have an understanding of some of the multitude of documents that are brought before you.
