  • Description
    The Montreal Convention, which came into effect in 2003, governs all international travel, whether of “persons, baggage or cargo.” Included in this provision are also some of the more notable international crashes and so it is somewhat surprising how few attorneys are well-versed in its provisions. Given its impact on the rights of carriers and passengers aboard international flights, understanding the provisions of the convention are essential to any potential claim. This CLE course will review all the nuances a seasoned attorney needs to know including applications of the convention, its ability to preempt state law claims, and questions of standing. The course will take into account the types of possible claims including bodily injury and baggage claims under Article 17, cargo claims under Article 18 and claims of delay under Article 19. The course will also discuss the critical question of whether the provisions of the convention can preempt claims of discrimination.
