SLS ABOUT

Why Aix-en-Provence ?

With more than 300 sunny days per year and a close connection to the sea, Aix-en-Provence is ideal for an adventurous summer. The noble façades lining the Cours Mirabeau and the majestic avenues, hidden squares and elegant fountains of the old town are trace of Aix's status as former capital of the counts of Provence. The city is punctuated by lovely cafés and bars with many terraces where you can sit under the sun. In a nutshell, Aix is a vibrant and irresistible city which you will wish never to leave after coming to our Summer School.

Why Air Law ?

Air Law is the field of law which provides the legal bases for aircraft navigation and governs its organization. Air traffic is growing more quickly than other modes of transport especially in between developed countries. Transport by the air is not only faster in speed but also ignores natural and man-made obstacles faced by road and railways transports, which makes it the ideal mode of transport over long distances.

Why the SLS on Air Law ?

The acuteness of terrorist threat and the emergence of new technologies -such as drones and information technology- are challenging the Law and aviation security Authorities. Bearing this in mind we decided to focus the first edition of our SLS on Air Law & Terrorism. Our academic program will allow you to gain knowledge in air Law, air terrorism, security policies and programs, protection of populations against terrorism and legal consequences of the fight against terrorism. It will be taught by highly recognized teachers from Aix-Marseille University’s Air Transport Institute (IFURTA), partner universities and professional working in the field of air security. Our Academic Program will be interspersed by visits of institutions and companies of interest for the subject under study.

Why you ?

Our SLS is open to European students who are interested in Air Law. Prior knowledge of the law subject is not required but interest in Air Transport and strong motivation will be highly considered. Good knowledge of English is mandatory and some knowledge of French might be of help (not mandatory)!
