Biography

Peter A. Appel joined the University of Georgia School of Law faculty in 1997 and teaches in the areas of property, natural resources law and environmental law.    Appel developed a practical understanding of environmental issues through his six years of service as an attorney with the Environment and Natural Resources Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. Prior to holding that position, he clerked for Chief Judge Gilbert S. Merritt of the Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.  From 1999 to 2001, Appel served as a Lilly Teaching Fellow at the University of Georgia. The campus-wide program offers support and discussion to a select few UGA professors who show strong promise in both teaching and scholarship; Lilly Fellows also receive funds to develop new instructional programs over their two-year fellowship.  Appel earned his bachelor's and law degrees from Yale University, where he served on the notes editing committee of the Yale Law Journal and was a member of the Yale Law and Policy Review.  For a listing of his recent scholarship, click here.
