In 1996, The Institute of Air and Space Law of McGill University was the proud recipient of the United Nation's International Civil Aviation Organization's prestigious Edward Warner Award for its ground breaking achievements.
The Edward Warner Award consists of a solid gold medal inscribed for the recipient, and a certificate of recognition citing the reasons for the Award.
It is recognized throughout the world as the greatest single honour the international civil aviation community can bestow, for its importance is derived from the fact that it is given by ICAO on behalf of its Member States.
No other international award offers such wide recognition.
