About Us

QELA is a multidisciplinary non-profit organisation, providing education on environment and planning law and the natural and built environments. We represent lawyers, barristers, town planners, environmental scientists, managers and engineers, academics, property valuers and developers. Our representatives serve on many stakeholder committees reviewing planning legislation and government policy.

QELA was established in 1987.

QELA hosts regular seminars presented by planning and environmental law experts, holds an annual conference, and publishes the ‘Queensland Environmental Practice Reporter’.

If you work with planning and environmental law, or you would like to improve your understanding of it, then QELA can help.
