New Aviation Law Treatise

Prof. Paul Stephen Dempsey, Director of the Institute of Air and Space Law at McGill University, recently published an extensive new aviation law treatise, Public International Air Law.  With nearly 900 pages of primary and secondary material, Prof. Dempsey's work should be applauded for its scope.  A full press release along with ordering information is available from McGill University here.

I am currently reading this very comprehensive book on my daily train commute. It is a little disappointing that it is not more global in its focus, something that the author acknowledges, although it is good to see the MALIAT covered. As with similar books, unfortunately detailed coverage of what is contained in the MoUs associated with more restrictive bilateral air services arrangements is light. This is an area that warrants more research. Another developing area that I would have welcomed more coverage of is the intersection between competition law and international air transport. The Chapter on formal dispute resolution is excellent.

Although dropping the route schedule (now of historic interest only) is understandable, I find it surprising that the key provisions of Bermuda I relating to capacity are omitted from the text reproduced at the end of the book. They were not in the agreement itself or Annex but in the Final Act (see ).

The book is full of excellent references for follow-up study.
