Brian F. Havel is a distinguished research professor of law, director of the International & Comparative Law Program, and director of the International Aviation Law Institute. From 2011 through 2013, Professor Havel was the Keeley Visiting Fellow at the University of Oxford, Wadham College. Professor Havel holds master’s degrees in law from University College Dublin and Columbia University Law School, as well as a master’s degree in languages and linguistics from Trinity College Dublin and a doctoral degree in international and comparative law from Columbia. He was the Wien Fellow in International and Comparative Law at Columbia and received the inaugural Outstanding Achievement Award of the Parker School of International and Comparative Law at Columbia for his work on international air transport deregulation. Before joining the DePaul faculty in 1994, he practiced transnational corporate and antitrust litigation at Paul Weiss Rifkind Wharton & Garrison in New York City.

Professor Havel's publications have an interdisciplinary focus and include Beyond Open Skies: A New Regime for International Aviation (Kluwer, 2009), a follow-up to his 1997 book, In Search of Open Skies: Law and Policy for a New Era in International Aviation (Kluwer 1997), as well as a number of law review studies including “The Constitution in an Era of Supranational Adjudication” (North Carolina Law Review 2000), “In Search of a Theory of Public Memory: The State, the Individual, and Marcel Proust” (Indiana Law Journal 2005), and “The Emerging Lex Aviatica” (Georgetown Journal of International Law 2011). His biography of his father, Miroslav Havel, late chief designer of Waterford Crystal, was published in Europe in 2006. He is editor in chief of the College of Law’s Issues in Aviation Law & Policy and is a member of the panel of contributing advisors to Kluwer Law’s Air and Space Law.

Professor Havel is a past chair of the Global Transport and Tourism Governors Meeting at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, a continuing member of the forum’s Aviation, Travel and Tourism Council, and has addressed air transport conferences and symposia throughout the world. He was elected to the board of the European Air Law Association in 2005 and to the external board of governors at the International Institute of Air and Space Law at Leiden in 2007. He also was the Fulbright Visiting Professor of Comparative Law and Legal Pluralism for 2007-2008 at McGill University’s Institute of Air and Space Law.
