The APIEL conference brings together hundreds of eco-minded and socially conscious activists, attorneys, students, scientists, and citizens in the interest of achieving environmental and social justice throughout Appalachia and surrounding areas. The conference features a series of workshops with the goal of exchanging information, sharing skills, and fostering collaboration between grassroots organizations, the bar, and future lawyers and policy-makers. These workshops address the region's most pressing ecological problems, as well as the underlying laws, policies and institutional dynamics that have enhanced these issues.

APIEL Conference 2013 is just around the corner. It will be held at the University of Tennessee College of Law on October 11-13.
