A brief summary of PIEL UK: Public Interest Environmental Law (PIEL) UK is run entirely by students, and was inspired by the environmental justice movement of the same name in the USA, where similar conferences have been running from Oregon for over 25 years. The annual conferences in the UK have been hosted and supported by the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, and have so far centred on corporate responsibility; energy and pathways to environmental justice; sustainability and international trade. PIEL UK also benefits from the support of Friends of the Earth, Capacity Global, FIELD, UKELA, ELF, The Gaia Foundation and academics at UCL, SOAS and Kent University.
