The newsletters are at the heart of the 's efforts at informing and educating Michigan public airport operators and their insurers as to various aspects of the law that have a direct effect upon the defense of general liability matters and how they are handled. This information is not only useful regarding a specific matter at a specific time, but is also useful in aiding public airport operators in developing ongoing operational and management strategies that take into account the legal framework in which all Michigan public airports operate.
The newsletters come out on a quarterly basis. Each newsletter covers a specific area of the law and/or a topic applicable to all Michigan public airports. This web site contains an archive of all previously issued newsletters set forth by issue number and topic. As this archive will grow on a quarterly basis, I invite you to return to the web site often in order to stay informed and up to date.
