Elizabeth Shearer is one of two Legal Practitioner Directors of Shearer Doyle Law, a small practice which also operates as Doyle Family Law and Affording Justice.

She was a member of QLS Council from 2014 to 2017, and again from 2019, when she was elected as Deputy President. She is chair of the QLS Access to Justice Pro Bono Committee, a Director of the Law Council of Australia (LCA) and a member of its Access to Justice Committee.
