Aviation Basics for the Non-Aviation Lawyer

March 28, 2012

Andrew Donovan serves as a faculty member on this Aviation CLE program presented by the New York City Bar on Wednesday, March 28, 2012 from 6:00 - 9:00 pm:

Do you have a client with aviation-related legal needs? Are you interested in practicing aviation law? With nearly 53 million annual enplanements at JFK, LaGuardia and Newark alone, the New York Metro area is the busiest air transportation hub in the United States. Add to that the myriad of other airports in New Jersey, Long Island and Westchester, and chances are that one or more of your clients will have an aviation-related need. Will you be able to meet their needs?

Whether it's a commercial or retail client doing new business at the airport or your biggest corporate client considering an on-demand air charter, fractional ownership, lease, or purchase of a corporate jet, or simply a private citizen subjected to excessive airport security, delays or lost baggage, this course is a valuable primer on the practical applications of aviation law. This not-to-be-missed program (and companion written materials) will touch upon issues ranging from contractual and regulatory to passenger protections, federal preemption, and liability limitations in connection with domestic and international air travel.
