DePaul Law to co-host discussion on airline security

DePaul University College of Law's International Aviation Law Institute and the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences' Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development will host their sixth annual lunch lecture, “Targeted Violence & Security Issues: Implications for Airport Planning.” Increase in global terrorism threats have required airports, rail and bus systems across the world to develop new ways to protect travelers, and this has become a matter of increasing importance, particularly with the holiday season approaching.

During the lecture, Katherine W. Schweit, head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's National Active Shooter Initiative and a DePaul law alumna, will discuss the security strategies of public transportation systems. She will also answer questions about how Chicago is responding to these concerns.

This free event will be held on Wednesday, November 2 from 12 to 1:30 p.m. at the DePaul Center, 1 East Jackson Boulevard, Room 8005. Register to attend by emailing chaddick@depaul.edu. Only people who have registered will be admitted to the event.
