STEP Queensland

We welcome all professional advisers, educators and students with a trusts and estates focus in their practice, whether for private or corporate clients.

STEP Queensland branch focuses on education, training, representation and networking for our members in the areas of trusts and estates.

The patron of our branch is pre-eminent trusts and estates scholar, Mr Tony Lee.  Tony is one of only nine honorary members of STEP Worldwide.

We have more than 230 members, many of whom are practising lawyers, but we have a growing membership base of accountants, trust company practitioners and financial planners.

Our program of events includes:

  • Monthly lunchtime seminars
  • Evening ‘roundtables’, where issues are dissected and debated in an informal setting
  • Our annual Trusts and Estates Conference – for further details, see here
  • Half day ‘intensives’, focusing on trusts, enduring powers of attorney and other practice issues

Most of our events are accessible to regional practitioners, by teleconference or webinar.
