The peak professional body for Queensland JPs and CDecs since 1918

Founded in 1918, the Queensland Justices Association has a long history of providing professional development and support to our volunteers who serve the Queensland community.

Our Vision is to be the pre-eminent organisation for Queensland's honorary justices.  We are committed to being the centre of excellence through a combination of leadership, training, professional development and advocacy.

We are Queensland’s most established and Australia’s largest association for honorary justices.

We support a growing number of branches throughout Queensland which facilitate activities, including regular meetings, organising signing facilities and professional development workshops, as of October 2016 we had 40 active branches.

We provide our Members with regular monthly electronic newsletters, priority bulletins, and the quarterly QJA Journal, which are produced by our experienced team of practicing Justices of the Peace who are also available 24 hours, 7 days, to support your Members when they most need help.

As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) Delegate we are licenced to deliver the accredited course required for appointment as a Justice of the Peace (Qualified) or Commissioner for Declarations. We continue to be the leading provider of pre-appointment training for Justices of the Peace and Commissioners for Declarations in locations throughout Queensland.

We deliver training in a variety of locations and formats to suit the diverse, distributed nature of our State. As a not-for-profit, surplus funds from the Training program are invested back into Branches and Membership activities which support Branch Members and the local community.
