This workshop is devoted to legal issues involving drones. Drones, also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, are taking over the landscape, and legal issues are popping up near and far. Drones are being used for aerial surveying of crops, film-making, search and rescue, inspections and surveys, delivering products and supplies–and more. Municipalities are starting to grapple with what ordinances can be passed that will withstand legal scrutiny. This workshop will provide an overview of the legal landscape related to drones and discuss what municipalities can and cannot do about drones in their own backyards.

*This course applies to the Maine Town, City and County Management Association Certification Program as 2 credits in the legal category.
