Have your say: ACT Law Society Member Survey now open

The ACT Law Society is pleased to launch our inaugural Member Survey. The survey provides members of the Society with an opportunity to share their experiences. Your answers will help build a greater understanding of the profession in the ACT, and help the Society to better support our members in the future.

The 10-minute survey is open to all members of the ACT Law Society until 5pm, Monday 7 December. If you complete the survey you can go in the draw to win a $500 prepaid Visa card.

Complete the survey now

The survey will ask you questions on:

  • your role and the type of work you do
  • your workplace
  • ACT Law Society services you use, or would like to use
  • your experience with issues facing the legal profession.

Your participation in the survey is voluntary and you can stop the survey at any time.

The survey is being conducted by Urbis, an independent research agency, on behalf of the ACT Law Society. The results of the survey will be used by the ACT Law Society to understand more about its members and how they can better support the profession in the future. 

The survey includes an option for you to identify if you would like to take part in further research being conducted directly by the ACT Law Society, and for you to enter a competition to win a $500 prepaid Visa card. If you provide your contact details for either of these questions, the contact information you provide will be disaggregated from the information you provide in the survey and your details will not be provided to the ACT Law Society unless you have provided express consent.

The information you provide will be aggregated for analysis and reporting and will not be linked to your personal identity nor to your employment details. To the extent the information you provide comprises personal information, Urbis will collect, hold, use and disclose that personal information in accordance with its privacy policy (a copy of which is available at www.urbis.com.au/privacy), which sets out how you may access and correct the personal information that we hold about you and how to lodge a complaint relating to our treatment of your personal information.

The prize draw to win a $500 prepaid Visa card is open to all survey participants who identify that they would like to enter the draw and provide their name, email and phone number. The terms and conditions of the prize draw can be found below.
