Some airport managers have asked if this course is just for attorneys, and the answer is “no”. It was designed for airport managers to bring their attorneys so that “airport” attorneys, especially for smaller jurisdictions who wear many hats and are not able to focus solely on airport issues, have the opportunity to network and learn how other airports handle their legal issues.
