APPEAL (Academics Promoting the Pedagogy of Effective Advocacy in Law) has been in existence now for just a year and a half. But within that short time, it has achieved remarkable things. They raised close to $20,000 to bring seven African APPEAL members to the Legal Writing Institute Conference in Indianapolis in July 2008. They collected over two tons of law books to send to colleagues in East Africa. They arranged for those books to be transported to Africa by the Boeing Company and Kenya Airways. And they are now planning the next conference for 2009 in Pretoria, South Africa.
