Proctor: On Parole – Not just a ‘get-out-of-jail-for-free’ card

The April 2020 edition of Proctor featured and profiled the Parole Board Queensland. This was a tremendous highlight for the Board. Proctor is the flagship monthly magazine of the Queensland Law Society. It is the magazine for the Queensland Legal Profession and a key source of information about the law and legal practice. It is also accessible by the public, the judiciary and the media.

The Parole Board was featured to mark the milestone that for almost three years Queensland’s parole system has operated under a new regime through the establishment of the Board in July 2017. The feature put a spotlight on the Board’s structure, the legislation governing the Board and the over-representation of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people in Queensland jails.
