How to Advertise

Advertising requests for the publication of your Notice in the Queensland Law Reporter (“QLR”) are lodged through the ICLRQ Online Customer Portal.

The QLR is published every Friday with the deadline for payment of the advertising fee and submission of the notice (through the ICLRQ Online Customer Portal) being the Monday prior at 3:30 pm. Please be advised that the ICLRQ is unable to accept submission of advertisements for the relevant publication date after the deadline has passed.

ICLRQ Online Customer Portal

First-time users are required to register with a valid email address in order to access the ICLRQ Online Customer Portal.

After registration, you can use the email address you registered with in order to log in to the ICLRQ Online Customer Portal.

After logging in, you will be directed to the main dashboard, where you can lodge your advertising request by clicking on “Prepare a New Notice”.

There are two ways to prepare a notice for advertising in the QLR:

  1. Auto-Generating Form - The auto-generating form wizard helps you prepare a notice for advertising in the QLR by having you answer a series of questions, and the answers you provide are then used to automatically fill in the pre-prepared wording from Form 103 (Notice of Intention to Apply for Grant) or Form 9 (Notice of Intention to Apply for Admission to the Legal Profession).
  2. Freeform Mode - The blank form, or freeform mode, allows you to insert your own text or preferred wording in order to prepare and draft your Notice of Intention to Apply for Grant or Notice of Intention to Apply for Admission to the Legal Profession or Other Notice (for example, a Notice of a Missing Will or a Notice of Intended Distribution of an Estate).

Advertising options

There are five forms offered on the ICLRQ Online Customer Portal for the preparation of notices to be advertised in the QLR:

  1. Probate Notice (Auto-Generating)

The auto-generating form wizard helps you prepare a notice for advertising in the QLR by having you answer a series of questions, and the answers you provide are then used to automatically fill in the pre-prepared wording from Form 103 (Notice of Intention to Apply for Grant).

  1. Probate Notice (Freeform)

The blank form, or freeform mode, allows you to insert your own text or preferred wording in drafting your own Form 103 (Notice of Intention to Apply for Grant).

  1. Admission Notice (Auto-Generating)

The auto-generating form wizard helps you draft an admission notice by having you answer a series of questions. The answers you provide are then used to automatically fill in the pre-prepared wording from Form 9 (Notice of Intention to Apply for Admission to the Legal Profession).

  1. Admission Notice (Freeform)

The blank form, or freeform mode, allows you to insert your own text or preferred wording in drafting your Form 9 (Notice of Intention to Apply for Admission to the Legal Profession).

  1. Other Notice (Freeform)

The blank form, or freeform mode, allows you to insert your own text or preferred wording in drafting a notice that is not for probate or admission to the legal profession (e.g. Notice of Missing Will or Notice of Intended Distribution of Estate).

NOTE: The information you are required to include in your Notice may vary from case to case. The forms provided through the ICLRQ Online Customer Portal should be used as a guide only, and they do not cover all the various situations that can arise when applying for a grant of probate, when applying for admission to the legal profession, or when advertising a missing will or an intended distribution of an estate. The ICLRQ is unable to offer legal advice or assistance in the drafting of notices to be advertised in the QLR.

Please refer to the Queensland Courts website for information about probate and grants. Please seek independent legal advice from a legal practitioner if your particular circumstances present concerns with the process of applying for a grant to administer an estate.

For queries relating to admission to the legal profession, please refer to the Queensland Law Society website or contact the Legal Practitioners Admissions Board directly.
