Avialex Law Group on planning committee and speaker for the Annual ABA Forum on Air and Space Law

Michael L. Dworkin was a part of the planning committee for the Annual ABA Forum on Air and Space Law held in New Orleans. Additionally, during the conference Mike spoke on the waiver requirements contained in the U.S. commercial human space flight regulations.

This system requires the operator, crew members, and space flight participants (SFP) to hold harmless and indemnify the US and its entities for loss or damage arising from licensed or permitted activities.

Mike was a panel member, addressing the wavier and reciprocal cross waivers required by the regulations, their scope, the legal relationships between and among the crew, the operator and the SFPs, and what constitutes informed consent.
