Adjunct Lecturer and Principal Solicitor, Suncoast Community Legal Service Inc.
Julian Porter is Principal Solicitor at Suncoast Community Legal Service and has twenty years' experience in the government and community legal sectors. Admitted as a legal practitioner in 1995 he rose through the ranks to Senior Legal Officer in the Appeals and Prosecutions section at Crown Law. After a stint working in London, a career change beckoned. While pursuing his love of writing never ended up paying the bills, his journalism qualification and five years of graft as a part-time freelancer sharpened his communication skills for a new challenge in the community sector. Firstly within disability advocacy group QAI, then for the past seven years at Suncoast CLS, Julian has enjoyed the challenge of building an organisation and its capacity and working with volunteers to assist people from situations of disadvantage. The involvement with University of Sunshine Coast students in the Law Clinic is yet another reason Julian is pleased he ended up sticking with the law.
