About the Workshop

The American Association of Airport Executives, in cooperation with the law firm of Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell LLP and the International Municipal Lawyers Association, is pleased to present the newly reformatted Airport Law Workshop.

The Workshop has long been regarded as the premier conference for both new and experienced lawyers (and those who need to understand airport law) to learn from experts the fundamental legal principles that underlie virtually all aspects of airport operations and development.  This workshop is the only conference that combines a thorough review of the basics of airport law with an update on recent legal developments.  For the first time ever conducted in an interactive virtual format, the instructors are seasoned practitioners with decades of experience and in-depth understanding of the federal laws, regulations, and policies that govern public-use airports.  Continuing legal education credits can be sought in most states.

This workshop is designed for both experienced and relatively new practitioners. The content is taught in plain English and is not limited to lawyers.  While more than half of the attendees are lawyers, participants always include those involved in airport administration, operations, planning, finance, property, environmental management, or security.  Senior airport managers and commissioners or board members attend as well. 

The workshop is one of a kind.  Don't miss your chance to attend and take advantage of this opportunity to gain valuable insight and information that you can put to use immediately, all right from your desk!

It includes new regulations, statutes, policies, case law and key secondary sources. Past attendees have reported that this book is kept as a well-used reference on their desks.
