Each spring, the Environmental and Land Use Law Society at the University of Florida Levin College of Law hosts the Public Interest Environmental Conference, a three-day conference devoted to discussing current issues affecting Florida’s natural environment. Now in its sixteenth year, the Conference has a national reputation for excellence and brings together a broad array of lawyers, scientists, policymakers, activists, and students. The theme of this year’s Conference is “Bringing It All Back Home: Leadership, Land Use, and Local-nomics,” and the discussion will focus on local solutions to our environmental challenges. We will emphasize the power of local environmental leadership, the potential of innovative local land use tools, and the promise of place-based economics and agriculture (“local-nomics”).

This year the PIEC is proud to present two distinguished keynote speakers, Julian Juergensmeyer and Bill Belleville. Julian Juergensmeyer was a professor of environmental law for thirty years at the University of Florida College of Law. He is now Ben F. Johnson Chair in Law at Georgia State University College of Law and Co-Director of the Center for the Comparative Study of Metropolitan Growth. Bill Belleville is an award-winning environmental author and documentary filmmaker and resident of Sanford, Florida. He has written five books, including River of Lakes: A Journey on Florida’s St. Johns River and Losing It All to Sprawl: How Progress Ate My Cracker Landscape.

We believe our Conference provides a forum for an exchange of ideas between private, government, and public practitioners; environmental professionals; advocates and activists; and the interested public. The Conference is free for all UF students, faculty, and staff.
