Second ICAO Civil Aviation Legal Advisors Forum

Launched by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the Civil Aviation Legal Advisers Forum is a platform for legal advisors to share views, knowledge and experience on issues in the civil aviation field, and to discuss various challenges faced by state parties, potential cooperation opportunities and possible solutions to address challenges emanating from technical, social and economic development.
