Poland's ICAO council representative lectures at IALI

Dr. Malgorzata Polkowska, the Republic of Poland’s representative on the council of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), visited the International Aviation Law Institute on January 26. Dr. Polkowska served as guest lecturer for the Public International Aviation Law & Policy class and met with institute faculty members. In her presentation, Dr. Polkowska explained ICAO’s organizational structure to the students and provided a first-hand account of the organization’s operations.

Appointed to her post in 2013, Dr. Polkowska is Poland’s first-ever representative on the 36-member ICAO Council. Prior to her appointment, she worked in both industry and government, lectured at universities in Poland and Canada and published numerous articles on aviation law.  Dr. Polkowska’s participation in IALI’s educational mission is the first formal follow-up to the institute’s December 8, 2014 symposium on the 70th anniversary of the Chicago Convention, which was held in cooperation with ICAO following a special session of the council.​
