Sarin & Co., a leading Indian law firm with a strong speciality in the field of Aircraft Finance & Leasing Law established in Chandigarh, India in 1932, and McGill University’s Institute of Air & Space Law, based in Montreal, Canada, are proud to announce the second edition of the Sarin – McGill Annual Student Essay Contest on Aircraft Finance & Leasing 2021.

Sarin & Co., has established this Essay Contest with the main objective of promoting the subject of Aircraft Finance & Leasing Law and encouraging student authors to think creatively and beyond the established rules and principles of law, thereby adding a future-leaning dimension and innovative approach to this ever-evolving field of law.

McGill University’s Institute of Air and Space Law (“IASL”) is the world’s premier academic setting for teaching and research in the dual disciplines of international air law and space law.  The Institute is now on course to consolidate and enhance its record of achievement as it celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, the same year that McGill University itself will turn 200.

The winner of the Contest will be flown to Montreal, Canada by Sarin & Co. for a visit to the home of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (“ICAO”) and McGill University. Should a student of McGill University win the contest, the Firm shall fly the winner to Chandigarh, India to visit the UNESCO Heritage marvels of India’s first planned city.  The winning entry will be published in the Annals of Air and Space Law, the IASL’s flagship academic publication.

Speaking on this momentous occasion, Nitin Sarin, Managing Partner, Advocate, LL.M. in Air and Space Law & Solicitor (England & Wales) of Sarin & Co., said “We, as part of our social legal responsibility are delighted and overjoyed to continue our partnership with McGill University’s Institute of Air & Space Law.

Professor Dr. Ram S. Jakhu, Acting Director of the McGill Institute of Air & Space Law, welcomed the continuation of the Contest as a recognition of the IASL’s longstanding academic strength in aviation finance law and also as a testament to the Sarin & Co. law firm’s professional commitment to the education and training of law students.  “We are delighted to continue and to deepen our partnership with Sarin & Co. in this contest, which is now firmly established to encourage future talent in this ever-increasingly important area of air law,” Professor Dr.  Jakhu stated.
