Aviation Law: Cases, Laws, and Related Sources

In our post-9/11 world, the laws of aviation are under intense scrutiny. From torts law and victim compensation to passenger screening, pilots with guns, and international aviation agreements, the practice of aviation law is burgeoning.
The book, AVIATION LAWS: Cases, Laws, and Related Sources, fills a gap in legal literature. It is directed to both practicing lawyers and to law students. The book introduces all the major areas of air law: International air law regime, crimes involving aircraft, economic regulation of domestic and international air carriage, litigation management, domestic and international liability regimes, governmental immunity from liability, airport law, airline travel restrictions, airport law, insurance, NTSB accident investigation, aircraft financing, FAA regulation of air safety, and airline labor relations. These subjects are presented not only in explanatory text, but also in cases and related source materials. The most important texts are annexed.
The authors, Professors Larsen and Gillick, have regularly taught the course in Air Law at Georgetown University Law Center for more than 30 years. They have long time hands-on experience at the Department of Transportation and in private practice. Professor Sweeney, John D. Calamari Distinguished Professor of Law, has taught the course at Fordham University Law School for 30 years. He also has extensive transportation practice background.

Review Quotes

In "Aviation Law," the authors, three experts in transportation law, provide the aviation law bar with a tool to make life a little easier and more pleasant. . . . The reader, whether a first-year law student or salty senior partner, receives a good dose of not only black-letter law but also a listing of primary source materials and key case reviews and citations. I have more than 35 years of aviation law experience and yet have already consulted the copy of "Aviation Law" in the Department of Transportation’s law library several times to refresh my memory about the nuances of aviation law. You’ll learn something from the book even if you think you know it all. . . . "Aviation Law" is a handy, up-to-date desk reference—a must read! - Diedrich, Bernard F. Review of Aviation Law: Cases, Laws and Related Sources, by Paul B. Larsen, Joseph C. Sweeney, and John E. Gillick. Journal of Air Law and Commerce, Volume 72, Number 3 (Summer 2007).
