With laws impacting its conduct from almost all levels of government, the aviation industry is one of the most regulated across the globe. Some of the main issues which are dealt with in aviation law matters are of a commercial nature, including aircraft acquisitions, airline sales and financing. Following accidents involving aircraft, claims in negligence and product liability against airlines are also dealt with through aviation law. The International Civil Aviation Organization, an agency under the United Nations, provides general rules regarding international aviation law.
