International Aviation Law Institute

DePaul College of Law’s International Aviation Law Institute closed on June 30. The departure this summer of the Institute’s academic director, Professor Brian F. Havel, will leave the College of Law without a tenure-track professor in the field of aviation law. Steve Rudolph, the Institute’s executive director, will assist in the transition process.

For the 2017-18 school year, components of the Institute’s academic program will remain in place and a number of aviation courses will be offered to enable our upper-level law students to complete their programs. The long-term future of the various courses will be determined over the coming year; accordingly, new students will not be accepted into the JD certificate, LL.M., or MJ aviation law programs until final decisions have been made.

Online access to the “Conversations with Aviation Leaders” oral history videos will continue to be available. An announcement concerning the Institute’s journal, Issues in Aviation Law and Policy, will be made later this summer.
