Registration is now open for the 2nd annual Appalachian Public Interest Environmental Law (APIEL) conference at the University of Tennessee College of Law. APIEL welcomes law and policy students, attorneys, community activists, scientists, and policy experts for a weekend of workshops and panels focused on exchanging information and fostering collaboration on the most critical environmental law issues of our time. The APIEL conference hopes to create a common ground for community organizers, lawyers and researchers to communicate, educate each other and have fun. For students, APIEL is a chance to network with leading lawyers, professionals, and community activists who are fighting for environmental justice and economic transition in central Appalachia.

Are you interested in seeing your name in print? Then consider writing a short piece on an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) topic for the Louisville Bar Association's Bar Briefs. Upcoming issues include: estate planning and tax, for those interested in writing about ADR in probate practice; professional responsibility, for those interested in writing about the ethical obligations of practitioners in ADR or of the neutrals; and young lawyers and law schools, for those interested in writing about their own experiences, as students, with ADR. If you are interested in writing about some other ADR topic, that is great too; the LBA will work with us to find a suitable publication date.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Professor Levinson.
