Jimena will be pursuing a career in aviation law with an emphasis on aviation safety. Her aim is to help developing countries to identify the gaps in their aviation safety systems and help them to achieve a better understanding and compliance with international regulations. During the past year she has been an intern for ICAO. Jimena has served as a paralegal to the Supreme Court of Justice of Mexico in Mexico City.
The Faculty of Law and the Institute of Air & Space Law offer Jimena Blumenkon their warmest congratulations.
