About Us

Welcome to the Forum on Air and Space Law! The Forum’s conferences and other activities serve as the one-stop shop for attorneys interested in all aspects of domestic and international air and space law, including airlines, airports, labor, finance, litigation, environment and antitrust, as well as regulatory issues arising from governmental entities such as FAA, DOT, NASA and EASA. In addition to our substantive programs, we also offer ample opportunities to see your friends, make new contacts, and meet with industry leaders, outside counsel, and potential clients.
