National Academy of Legal Studies and Research (NALSAR) University of Law in collaboration with the Institute of Applied Aviation Management (IAAM), Calicut, has launched a one-year ‘postgraduate diploma in aviation law and air transport management’ at NALSAR campus.

The course was inaugurated by Justice L. Narasimha Reddy, Judge of High Court of Andhra Pradesh.

Emphasising the importance of aviation education, he highlighted the significance of the regulatory aspects for a fast growing aviation industry. Advances made by aeronautics were so tremendous that globalisation of air transport operations was now a commonplace for mankind. In this scenario, law must keep pace with the growth of air transport, he said.
