Darren Bush of the University of Houston Law Center has put together an excellent program on Antitrust and the Airline Industry: A Performance Review of 30 Years of Deregulation, sponsored by the University of Houston Law Review.

University of Houston Law Center CLE Credit: 5.5 Hours

Thirty years after airline deregulation took to the friendly skies, opinions remain sharply divided. Proponents cite effi ciencies of operation and reduced costs to passengers, while detractors say deregulation continues to threaten the industry.
This provocative one-day symposium will look at all sides of deregulation as it covers topics ranging from competition issues to proposed “mega-mergers” among large U.S. carriers.
