Chair

I am a postgraduate student at SOAS studying International Law. Chairing PIEL’s 2018 Committee has been such a fantastic experience as I have had the opportunity to work with an amazing group of peers whose enthusiasm for the project continuously inspires me! I have equally enjoyed engaging with a variety of professionals and I look forward to welcoming you all to our conference in the Spring!

Frosina Antonovska

Co-Chair

I am a postgraduate student at Queen Mary University of London. My field of specialisation is Environmental Law. I have decided to join the Organising Committee of PIEL UK Conference because I recognised the chance to meet and exchange ideas with professionals who share the same urge for environmental justice and who do not fear to explore new ways of achieving it.

Nicholas Cheung

Arthur Hopkinson

Sponsorship Co-Ordinator
I am currently studying for a GDL at BPP University in Bristol. I am interested in a career as a solicitor and would like to one day specialise in environmental law. I have really enjoyed being part of the PIEL 2018 Organising Committee. It has been a great experience to work alongside others who share my interest in environmental law and who are equally determined to raise awareness about environmental justice.

Alice Edinburgh

Communications Officer

I am currently studying a LLB at University of York Law School, hoping to commence the LPC in 2019 and later, specialise in environmental law. I believe that becoming a part of the Organising Committee of PIEL UK Conference has helped me to evidence my interest in environmental justice, allowed me to engage with others who share this and learn more about public interest environmental law, an area of law which I would not otherwise have been exposed to.

Vienne Lau

Marketing Officer

I am currently at UCL studying an LLM in Environmental Law and Policy. I am grateful to take part in The PIEL UK Conference, and I believe that this a great platform for different stakeholders to engage with environmental issues and importantly in fostering environmental justice.

Nika Gorodnitskaya

Logistics Officer

I am an LLB Law student at City University of London. Becoming a part of the Organising PIEL Committee appealed to me because of the opportunity to be a part of the forum of academics and students, with the purpose of fostering a rising awareness of Environmental problems. Moreover, because of the ability to contribute as an individual by delivering ethical and sustainable conference.
