The Worldwide Airport Lawyers Association (WALA) was conceived in Prague, Czech Republic, on September 2007, where destiny gathered airport lawyers from across the world . The attendees agreed that aviation and aeronautical law in each of their respective countries was outdated, leaving them unprepared to face the new and rapidly changing reality of airport ownership and operations, which required specialized legal concepts and knowledge. Consequently, they agreed on the need to create and promote a worldwide forum; a meeting place where aviation lawyers and all other interested parties could develop, share and debate relevant issues in the field of airport law.
Seven months later, WALA became a reality with its first conference taking place in Spain. Since then, subsequent annual meetings have taken place in Madrid, Lisbon, Dallas, Amsterdam, Montreal, Buenos Aires and Athens. WALA’s IX conference will take place in Bologna, Italy January 18-19, 2017.
WALA is a not-for-profit corporation, founded to promote and assist in cooperation among legal advisers and other public and private sectors of the worldwide airport, aviation and aeronautical industries.
