Southeastern Public Interest Environmental Law Conference
October 11 @ 8:00 am - October 13 @ 5:00 pm
* PLEASE SAVE THE DATE *
The organizing committee members for the first-annual Southeastern Public Interest Environmental Law (“SPIEL”) conference enthusiastically invite you to participate in a unique series of upcoming events serving the public interest environmental movement of the American Southeast. SPIEL 2024 will meet an outstanding need in our region to bring together public interest environmental lawyers, grassroots advocates, scientists, academics, students and other supporters of our movement for a weekend of in-depth learning, networking, strategizing, tactical development, and fun. From the environmental justice battles of the Gulf Coast to the rash of dammed river ecosystems up and down the Atlantic seaboard; from the transformation of our energy systems in the age of climate chaos to fossil fuel pipeline fights from the mountains to the sea; from the scourge of coal mining and fracking on the Cumberland Plateau to the impacts of industrial forestry on the extraordinary biodiversity of our entire region, SPIEL is a forum for all of these topics and many more. And the dazzling campus of the University of the South at Sewanee couldn’t provide a more idyllic setting for this gathering. Please mark your calendars. We don’t want you to miss this.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
SPIEL 2024 isn’t just for public interest environmental lawyers. At this event, we aim to bring together people from a diversity of professions across the Southeast for a rich interdisciplinary discourse that mutually benefits us all. Grassroots environmental advocates, scientists and academics with useful research to share, and students and community members who aspire to contribute to the movement all have a place at this conference.
WILL THERE BE CLE CREDIT AVAILABLE?
Yes. SPIEL 2024 will include numerous panels with Continuing Legal Education (“CLE”) credit for attorneys. However, this conference will offer content of interest to everyone who is passionate about protecting our incredible, rich, and diverse region. SPIEL will feature panels led by grassroots environmental advocates, scientists, academics, and lawyers. As a result, we encourage presentation proposals that provide CLE and presentation proposals that do not provide CLE.
