Oxford scholar speaks on EU passenger rights law

Dr. Jeremias Prassl, Supernumerary Fellow in Law at St. John’s College, Oxford, visited the International Aviation Law Institute (IALI) on Monday, October 21, to teach a seminar on EU passenger rights law.

Dr. Prassl focused his discussion on the tension between the delay provisions of the Montreal Convention and the terms of EU Regulation 261 on passenger compensation for delays, cancellations and denied boarding. Dr. Prassl’s article, "The European Union and the Montreal Convention: A New Analytical Framework," was published in the Spring 2013 issue of IALI’s academic journal, Issues in Aviation Law and Policy.
