Established in 2007, PIEL UK is not-for-profit organisation run by students from throughout the University of London. PIEL UK organises an annual conference on a burning topic in Environmental Law.
This year’s Conference, ‘Satisfying Consumption: Trade and the Environment‘ will be focused on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership agreement (TTIP) being negotiated between the US and the EU.
It will also explore the role of corporations and trade networks in causing, but also managing, a range of environmental problems, from excessive waste to deforestation and climate change.We endorse a interdisciplinary approach, welcoming activists, academics and practising lawyers from a range of fields. The full-day event typically attracts around 200 students, academics and practitioners, and is realised entirely through the sponsorship of Universities, NGOs and law firms. This is a highly-affordable full-day event which offers great opportunities to find out about environmental law and to network. We are delighted to have City Law School as our official partner this year.
