The Appalachian Public Interest Environmental Law (APIEL) conference brings together activists, attorneys, scientists, students and concerned citizens working for environmental justice throughout Appalachia and the surrounding states. The weekend conference will feature a series of panels, workshops and dialogues led by grassroots activists, lawyers and scientists with the goal of exchanging information, sharing skills, and fostering collaboration between the grassroots, the bar, and future lawyers and policy-makers. Workshops will address the region's most pressing ecological problems, as well as the underlying laws, policies and institutional dynamics that have enabled these issues to occur.
Please note that need-based conference registration scholarships can be applied for through your registration form, and they will be granted on a first-come-first-serve basis to those who qualify.
