  • What is the Public Interest Environmental Conference?

    Thank you for expressing interest in the 23rd annual Public Interest Environmental Conference: “Land Conservation: The Worth Of the Earth.” For over twenty years, the Public Interest Environmental Conference (PIEC) has sought to promote an understanding of the legal aspects of environmental protection, to serve and inform individuals as to the necessity for improvements in environmental legal protection, foster the development of sound environmental legislation, measure the effects of environmental litigation, and to assist other groups involved in environmental education.

    The conference brings together legal practitioners, academics, policy makers, and private citizens to discuss preeminent issues surrounding a different environmental topic each year. The theme of the 2017 conference is land conservation and will examine the challenges, concerns, and future of land conservation law and policy from a regional and national standpoint.
