If your employer has a Corporate Account with us, you will qualify for the Corporate discount on Professional and Young Professional membership.


When will my membership begin and how long does it run for?

All memberships commence from the date they are approved and expire on the 31st of December annually. Existing members have until 28th February to renew their membership, before their access lapses, and they lose their continuous membership.


How do I join my local branch of Energy & Resources Law?

When you join Energy & Resources Law you automatically gain access to your branch activities and communications. The Branch committee will be looking forward to welcoming you aboard!


I’m not a lawyer but I’m interested in the legal aspects of energy, resources and renewables law – can I join?

Yes. Young Professional and Professional membership is available to individual professionals interested in Energy & Resources Law.


How can I tell if my organisation has a corporate account?

If your organisation holds a corporate account, the discounted rates will automatically be applied during the sign-up process. Simply ensure you select them from the ‘Company’ drop-down menu, and use your work email address during the sign-up process. If you cannot find your organisation listed but believe they do hold a corporate account please contact our membership team.


As an employee of a corporate account holder, how do I access the benefits associated with corporate membership?

To join or renew your membership with the corporate account rates, simply ensure you select them from the ‘Company’ drop-down menu and use your work email address during the sign-up process.


If I leave my current employment does my membership travel with me?

If you hold an individual Associate, Professional or Young Professional membership, not associated with a Corporate account, your membership stays with you.


If your membership is attached to a Corporate Account, you can either upgrade to an individual membership (pro-rated for the remaining year), or if your new employer has a Corporate account, there’s a small fee to transfer your membership.


One of our employees in our corporate account is leaving, can we replace their membership?

If the new employee has an existing membership elsewhere, there’s a small fee to transfer it. If the new employee doesn’t have an existing membership, they can join at the pro-rated rate for the remainder of the year.
