Leanne Bowie is the immediate past chair of the Planning & Environment Committee of the Queensland Law Society and also acts as both a legal advisor and service member of the Queensland Resources Council. She is also an allied professional member of the Planning Institute of Australia and has been a regular presenter for PIA. All of our senior associates are also involved in the Queensland Environmental Law Association.
Our experience on behalf of these (and other) peak industry groups, combined with Leanne’s long history of advising the Queensland Government on legislative and policy changes, is particularly relevant to the firm’s recognition at the ‘cutting edge’.
Leanne has lectured the environmental law component of the mining and petroleum law subject for the University of Queensland in 2007 and 2009, and was previously Queensland editor of the National Environmental Law Review (the publication of the National Environmental Law Association) for over 6 years.
