An exhibition and publication pays tribute to Queensland's lawyers (and lawyers-in-training) who served in World War I.
This is a signature project from Queensland's legal profession to mark the Anzac Centenary.
The project aims to honour and preserve the memory of those legal professionals who left the comfort and safety of their law chambers to fight in foreign terrains and appalling conditions.
Work on the project is offering fascinating insights into Queensland society and its legal profession in the 20th century and highlights the loss to our society and our legal profession as a result of the war.
View the list of lawyers and prospective lawyers we have identified as having served in WW1.
Read the poems that inspired the exhibition's title.
This commemorative publication, released in February 2016, pays tribute to Queensland's lawyers (and lawyers-in-training) who served in World War I.
