TLF Creative is an Orchestra and Arts based group that provides an inclusive and creative space for legal professionals. The legal industry is stressful, so TLF Creative gives you the opportunity to take a break from the stress of work and express your musical and artistic talents alongside like-minded professionals. Our goal with TLF Creative is to foster collaboration, combat isolation, promote positive mental health and enable creative and talented legal professionals to meet socially, on a regular basis, and collectively pursue musical goals.




The Queensland Lawchestra (‘LawchestraQ’) is a classical orchestra comprising law students, solicitors, barristers and other members of the legal profession from Brisbane. It rehearses fortnightly at the beautiful Old Museum Building in Bowen Hills. Concerts are held regularly throughout the year. We also provide opportunities for smaller chamber groups to perform at TLF Creative and other industry events.

The Lawchestra is a fun and welcoming environment for people involved with the law in Brisbane to continue (or revive) their passion for music-making. We are seeking musicians of all abilities, so don’t be afraid if you haven’t picked up your instrument for a while!


Big Band & Jam Sessions

In 2020, TLF Creative are launching a Big Band to enable a more diverse range of members of the legal profession to participate in this project. We are also aiming to host monthly jam sessions. Use our expression of interest form below if you are interested in staying up to date on these initiatives.



As well as our musical ensembles, TLF Creative also hold a variety of events. In July 2019, we held an event entitled ‘Arts, Law and Life: Perspectives from the Profession’ at Law Society House in Brisbane. This event brought together a panel of individuals who have achieved success in both legal and creative pursuits.

With the support of Justice Philippides, plans are currently underway for an event focussed on visual arts and law featuring performances from members of LawchestraQ.


If you are interested in joining one of our ensembles, or staying up to date on our events and future initiatives, you can fill out the form below to express your interest. In 2020, TLF Creative will be running a Lawchestra, Big Band and regular Jam Sessions for lawyers, law students and others associated with the legal profession in Brisbane. Therefore, we are calling on anyone involved with the law in Brisbane who plays an instrument (i.e. strings, woodwind, brass, guitar, bass, percussion etc) to express their interest in being part of our ensembles, which will commence in March 2020.

In the future we hope to expand not only to other ensembles but also to other art forms such as drama and art. As such, please let us know in the comment section below if you would be interested in any other activities or ensembles.
