The 2016 IBA Annual Conference in Washington, DC will feature around 200 conference sessions. These vary widely in style and with the core substantive committee sessions at the heart of the conference programme covering most sectors and practice areas, the conference will provide the opportunity to focus on your own areas of interest. Attendees will hear from leading international figures on a wide range of topics, such as the challenges of law firm management and international relationships, ethics, the future of the legal profession, and the rule of law and human rights.
David Heffernan of the Aviation Regulatory Group will be presenting on a panel, "Update on Legal Commercial Issues Related to Drones." Drones are in the news almost every day as intrusions and other security incidents occur and new commercial uses of drones are constantly being considered, including surveying crops, assistance in forecasting weather, delivery of products and perhaps even (eventually) pilotless passenger aircraft. Further, many countries are considering how they will regulate drones. This session will explore the potential uses of drones and regulatory and liability issues associated with their use.
