OXFORD, Miss. – Canadian aviation law expert Paul Fitzgerald visits the University of Mississippi School of Law on Wednesday (Nov. 1) for a discussion of a major trans-Atlantic pact between Air Canada, Lufthansa and United Airlines.

His talk, titled “Introducing A++, A Global Mega Airline You’ve Never Heard Of,” is set for 12:45 p.m. in Room 1115 of the law center. The lecture is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be provided.

A member of the Canadian Transportation Agency and professor at the McGill Institute of Air and Space Law, Fitzgerald has served as an adviser to the government on aviation, rail and marine matters.

“It’s an exciting opportunity for our students to have someone of Dr. Fitzgerald’s international reputation come to Ole Miss to not only speak to our students and faculty, but also to run a workshop in one of our aviation courses,” said Andrea Harrington, associate director of the law school’s LL.M. program in air and space law.

The UM law school has a concentration program in remote sensing, air and space law for J.D. students and an LL.M. program in air and space law for advanced students. Home to the National Center for Remote Sensing, Air and Space Law, it is the country’s only law school to have a program in aviation.
