It is widely agreed that activities within the Aviation industry occur within one of the most extensive and strictly regulated environment and such operations often encompass issues beyond national borders due to the nature of air travel. It is therefore important to be fully aware of national and international legal and regulatory responsibilities so that aviation professionals can perform daily aviation activities with confidence while dealing with highly technical and complex regulatory issues. This is the second course on Aviation law with a strong emphasis on the formation and some other legal aspects in the context of international aviation.

This is the second course on aviation law and it aims to provide a broad and coherent body of knowledge on aviation law in the international context. This course introduces the principles of international aviation law and relevant international treaties and legislations. The topics include, but not limited to, The Chicago Convention, Multilateral agreements, Warsaw and Montreal Conventions, Sovereignty, freedoms of the air and open sky agreements. The course will maintain a pragmatic and practical approach throughout the offering of the course by placing a stronger focus on the application of civil aviation regulatory practices in commercial aviation sectors and where applicable by reviewing various aviation-related cases to illustrate legal principles.
