Aviation Law

Join the Aviation Section

The Aviation Law Section focuses on major air crash litigation. The Section studies federal legislation and treaties such as Death on the High Seas Act, General Aviation Revitalization Act, and the Warsaw and Hague Convention to ensure that those injured in air tragedies have avenues of recourse and recovery.

The Aviation Law Section is endowed by John Howie.
