The Am Law Symposium recorded in this edition of the Akron Law Review covers two topics: The Guatemala Protocol of 1971, and Aerial Hijacking. The Guatemala Protocol places a higher limit on liability of air carriers where a passenger on board a scheduled international air flight is killed or injured. Recently a New York judge ruled a hijacking incident an "accident" within the meaning of the Warsaw Convention.' It has also been ruled that mental suffering alone may be compensable under Article 17 of that Convention.
