  • LEARNING AND RESEARCH

    Perpetuating the tradition of research in law at the Faculty of Law of Aix-en-Provence, the M2 DMTA has strong links with research. This link is reflected in particular by the particular care given to the documentary collection of the Library where students work, by the great importance attached to dissertations and by the participation of students in the colloquiums organised by the Faculty of Law and Political Science's Transport Department.

    The M2 DMTA is a research programme that is based on the principle of "research is not just about research".

    Research and support entities:

    The training is supported by the Pôle Transports (CDMT and IFURTA) of the Faculty of Law and Political Science, which leads and coordinates the maritime, aviation and transport law team of the Centre de Droit Économique (EA n° 4224, AMU).

As part of my Master's degree in Air Transport Law and Management at IFURTA, I did my end-of-studies internship at Châteauroux airport with the airport's security manager. These few months in an airport were a great opportunity to develop my knowledge of the air transport sector and to better understand its diversity, since Châteauroux airport is the seat of many aeronautical activities different from the classic commercial passenger transport: specialized freight, maintenance, dismantling, aircraft painting, training centre for aerodrome firemen, pilot training, manufacturer tests, ... This internship also confirmed and even strengthened my will to work in the airport sector. After IFURTA, I looked for a first position on an airport platform, before finally being recruited at the beginning of 2016 by the Union of French Airports (UAF) as a lawyer, a position I still hold today. UAF, which has since become UAF & FA (Union des Aéroports Français et Francophones Associés), is the professional organization of French airports, whatever their size and specialty. Its main mission is to defend and promote the interests of the French airport community with French and European decision-makers. In the context of my duties, I am required to advise and inform UAF members on all legal issues that may affect them: competition law, State aid, insurance, public property, concession law, personal data protection, etc. I am now very pleased to return to IFURTA as a lecturer in the "Airport Management" seminar to present the French airport network and the different management methods of the platforms to the students. I am also in charge of the course "Organisation and European and international air law" within the Professional Licence "Airport Logistics and Air Transport" of the IUT of Evry.
