Campbell Law Review symposium to focus on drone use

RALEIGH, N.C. - Campbell Law Review will hold its annual symposium on Friday, Feb. 3, on the legal issues surrounding the domestic use of drones. The daylong event will feature five panels with 22 legal scholars from across the country and a keynote address by Dr. Gregory McNeal.
From Kitty Hawk to Blowing Rock, the history of flight in North Carolina is an ever-evolving story that is entering a new chapter with the widespread use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) by businesses, private individuals and government entities. Speakers and participants will examine legal and policy issues arising from the use of drones.

“Drones are all over the news, and many of the legal questions and concerns related to their use and oversight still need to be sorted out,” said Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard. “I applaud our Campbell Law Review for putting together such a stellar cast of experts and thought leaders for this timely and needed conversation.”

The symposium includes 6.25 hours of continuing legal education (CLE) credit, is free for students and open to the general public for a nominal charge. Click here to register online. Registration will close at 5 p.m. on Friday, January 27.
