Dear IASL Alumni and Friends,

Recently, the McGill Daily published an article describing an effort by a student organization – Demilitarize McGill – to protest activities at several McGill University institutions, including the Institute of Air & Space Law [IASL], a graduate program of the Faculty of Law. The article erroneously states, "The IASL . . . conducts research for the U.S. Air Force." This is false. The IASL conducts no research for or on behalf of the USAF or any other military institution.
