Environment and planning law spans all areas of the law and transcends legal jurisdictions. Not all our members practise environmental or planning law, nor is it a requirement for joining our committee. From their work and study, our members are constantly developing scenarios in a wide range of areas of law and bringing their ideas and strategies to our monthly meetings.
Environmental law is tangible – we can often see the physical effects environmental legislation has on the world around us. If you have an interest in planning law or the new and up-and-coming laws affecting Australia’s backyard, such as water law and the CPRS, then the Environment and Planning Law Committee is for you.
Come along to a meeting – we welcome all interested students and young lawyers who like to engage in a healthy debate in an atmosphere that encourages a diversity of ideas and opinions.
Despite our differences we share a common passion – to strive for the protection of the environment.
