CREEL liaises closely with the Australian Mining and Petroleum Law Association Limited (AMPLA) at both national and State branch levels.
It also liaises closely with the Resources Law Committee of the Business Law Section (BLS), Law Council of Australia.
CREEL maintains links with several state and government organisations, such as Victorian Competition and Efficiency Commission (VCEC) and the Murray-Darling Basin Commission. The National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT) supports CREEL's program concerning native title.
In the international arena, CREEL works closely with the Section on Energy, Environment, Natural Resources and Infrastructure Law (SEERIL) of the International Bar Association. Professor Godden is member of the Academic Advisory Group in the Section and contributed to the program by participating in a Symposium on Climate and Energy Law at the Biennal Meeting of the section in Copenhagen, 2008. The presentation of the academic advisory group drew from the publication Beyond the Carbon Economy.
CREEL also maintains contact with leading environmental and resources centres in the USA (Colorado), Canada (Vancouver and Calgary) and United Kingdom (Dundee). One of CREEL's objectives for the near future is to strengthen existing contacts, and in addition to develop new relationships in the Asia/Pacific region.
