LPE Leadership Seminar Series: Aviation Policy, Law, and Engineering in the Context of the Policy-Law-Engineering Loop
Please join Dean Osofsky and Justin Swartz, Harold and Inge Marcus Dean of Engineering, for this inaugural event in the Law, Policy, and Engineering (LPE) Leadership Seminar Series on December 5. Featured speaker John-Paul Clarke will describe the relationship between law, policy, and engineering and how the three combine to create an optimized recursive loop that addresses societal needs. Clarke will highlight how domestic and international aviation policy and law inform and are informed by engineering, provide retrospective from personal flight procedure research, and provide his perspective on the ongoing deliberations regarding supersonic flight over land.
Please RSVP here. Lunch will be provided following the seminar for those that RSVP.
LPE is an initiative of Penn State Law in University Park, the School of International Affairs, and the College of Engineering.
