Robert Hedrick recently travelled down under to give a series of presentations to attorneys and law students in Australia. On May 9, 2014 he gave a presentation at the 33rd Annual Aviation Law Association of Australia and New Zealand in Melbourne, entitled Recent Developments In U.S. International Aviation Law. During his one-hour PowerPoint presentation, he discussed recent Montreal Convention cases, issues of U.S. Jurisdiction and Forum Non Conveniens, Airline Deregulation Act Preemption cases, and the status of U.S. drone regulation. Hedrick also provided an update of major air carrier accidents that are in litigation in U.S. courts.
Hedrick also gave five Nuremburg Trial presentations to law schools located in Sydney and Melbourne. His PowerPoint lecture was entitled: From History’s Greatest Trial: The Cross Examination Of Nazi Hermann Goering. The schools included: University of New South Wales School of Law, University of Notre Dame School of Law, Macquarie University Law School, and the University of Victoria Law School. Hedrick believes that lawyers (and non-lawyers) young and old can learn from significant trials that have withstood the test of time.
