Air traffic is gradually resuming and private entities as well as public institutions are committed to tackling aviation’s greatest challenge: flying with zero carbon emissions. Aside from environmental concerns, regional and international regulation authorities, airlines, airport operators, aircraft manufacturers, OEM, MRO and groundhandling firms have to face a growing number of complex challenges and to deal with more legal and regulatory issues such as safety, security, export control, embargoes, data protection, competition, unmanned systems… In this context, the demand for qualified legal expertise is increasing.

With more than 300 hours of face-to-face teaching, a set of comprehensive modules addressing the major current legal issues of this area, and many academic and industrial partnerships, this LLM stands first and unique worldwide and is designed both for graduate students and for top executives in these domains.
