Testimonial

Rotimi Oguneso, Abdullahi Ibrahim and Co
It was really a valuable experience for me being exposed to the basic principles of International Aviation Law and the myriad conventions, protocols, practices and regulations that makes the course very interesting and exciting. More exciting is the willingness of other colleagues to share their knowledge and experience with someone like me who was starting from ground zero with regard to aviation law.
