Environment and Planning Law Committee

The NSW Young Lawyers Environment and Planning Law Committee delves into all aspects of environment and planning law, raising awareness across the legal profession and the wider community about new and upcoming changes to both NSW and national legislation, as well developments in case law and policy. Joining the Committee provides members with the opportunity to get involved in topical programmes ranging from the preparation of submissions on law and policy reform, to co-ordinating and attending charity fundraising events and targeted CPD programs. The Committee also provides an essential networking platform for students and lawyers working across all aspects of environment and planning law. Whether your interest is in planning, biodiversity, agriculture, climate change, mining, forestry or water, our committee brings together a network of enthusiastic practitioners to discuss their shared interest in the environment.

If you are a practicing solicitor or law student and have an interest in laws and new developments affecting our environment, then the Environment and Planning Law Committee is for you. No prior experience is necessary, and any young lawyer or law student is more than welcome to come to our meetings, and sign up to our mailing list to receive updates on our upcoming events and new developments in environment and planning law.
