The State Solicitor's Office is searching for dynamic and experienced lawyers (counsel and solicitors) to join our busy legal practice.

Those matters include claims in which RiskCover is or may be involved, such as public liability, asbestos, medical negligence or workers' compensation, as well as human rights and equal opportunity, industrial and employment law disputes, historic child sex abuse and abuse in care matters. Litigation team members working on these matters tend to be specialists in their area of practice.
  2. Public and General – Matters include constitutional and administrative law matters; regulatory prosecutions; commercial and contractual disputes, State revenue and debt recovery. Litigation team members working on these matters tend to be generalists who will work across a range of areas and may also undertake counsel work.

Counsel work is performed by many lawyers within the Office across a range of work areas, irrespective of the section in which they are primarily placed.
