Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani Aviation Litigation Partner Catherine Slavin will be a featured speaker at the 24th Annual National Institute on Aviation Litigation on June 14, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois. Slavin will join two other speakers and a moderator in a panel discussion on "Cyber Risk, Emerging Technologies, and Traditional Aviation: Implications for the Future of the Aviation Industry and Aviation Litigation."
Slavin's panel will address groundbreaking challenges and issues presented by the confluence of cyber risk, emerging aviation technologies (such as UAVs, ATC modernization, and urban air mobility), and traditional aviation. The discussion will focus on key topics sitting at this cross-section, how they reshape our current understanding of aviation law, and how aviation lawyers can prepare for the future as a result.
Joining Slavin on the panel are Jeremy Hager of Marsh and Alisa R. Brodkowitz of Friedman Rubin. Paul Bowles of Fitzpatrick & Hunt, Pagano, Aubert will be the moderator.
