ABA Publishes “Commercial Drone Law”

With commercial drones becoming more commonplace in the U.S. landscape, legal questions are surfacing, from the approvals necessary to start a drone business to whether evidence obtained by a drone is admissible in court. A new release from the American Bar Association, “Commercial Drone Law: Digest of U.S. and Global UAS Rules, Polices, and Practices,” provides an authoritative resource that can help answer these questions and more.

Written for a novice or a seasoned legal professional, the book identifies and explains drone law for the academic, practitioner and student in a fundamental yet comprehensive way. The book is a traditional treatise that addresses the main legal, business and regulatory issues associated with unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs. The book offers a great introduction to the seminal issues that constitute this area of emerging law.

“Commercial Drone Law” is written by Timothy M. Ravich, an assistant professor at the University of Central Florida and an internationally recognized authority in aviation law. Ravich, one of only 37 lawyers recognized as a Florida Bar Board Certified Aviation Lawyer, has written extensively in connection with aviation issues, including airline deregulation and passenger rights, aviation security and terrorism, law and technology, and unmanned aerial vehicles, also known as drones.
