The mandate of the Cape Town Convention
Journal (the 'CTC Journal'), part of the Cape
Town    Convention Academic Project (the
'Project'), a joint undertaking between the
University of Oxford Faculty of Law and the
University of Washington School of Law, is to
focus on in-depth, qualitative analysis of important,
difficult or complex topics under the Convention
and its various Protocols.
   This second   issue, published under the
auspices of the Project and UNIDROIT, does
exactly that. Its content reflects a deepening
analysis of (i) the texts of the Convention and
the Protocols, (ii) the legal and practical issues
associated with their implementation, and (iii)
the issues that relate to or link the text and its
implementation.
   In the first category are articles assessing
provisions relating to  (a) intangible assets
(Professor Sir Roy    Goode QC, Emeritus
Professor of Law at the University of Oxford
and Emeritus Fellow of St John's College,
Oxford), (b) jurisdiction and choice of law
(Professor Karl Kreuzer, Emeritus Professor
of Law at the University ofWiirzburg) and (c)
public service (Howard Rosen, principal of
Howard Rosen Solicitors and chairman of the
Rail Working Group).
   In the second category are articles analysing
 (a) the relationship between the texts and
 national law (Jeffrey Wool, secretary general of
 the Aviation Working Group, head of aerospace
 law  and  policy  at Freshfields Bruckhaus
 Deringer and affiliate professor of law, University
 of Washington and Andrej Jonovic, an associate


at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer) and (b) the
development of the international registry under
the Aircraft Protocol (William Piels, a partner
of Holland & Knight LLP and Chairperson
of the regulation drafting committee of the
International Registry Advisory Board, and Tan
Siew Huay, Director (Legal) of the Civil Aviation
Authority of Singapore and Chairperson of
the Regulations drafting group of ICAO's
Commission of Experts for the Supervisory
Authority of the International Registry).
   In the third category are articles addressing
(a) non-consensual rights and interests (John
Pritchard, a partner of Holland & Knight LLP
and David Lloyd, Executive Vice President
and General Counsel of GE Capital Aviation
Services), and  (b) perfection  and priority
provisions from a comparative law perspective
(Michel Deschamps, a partner of McCarthy
Tetrault, associate professor at the Faculty of
Law of University of Montr&al).
  These contributions are provided by authors
active in developing the matters addressed. All
of these articles, save one, have been written by
at least one author who was a participant of,
or was an observer at, the relevant diplomatic
conferences that adopted    the  texts. Like
the momentous revisions to      the  Official
Commentaries (for the Convention and each
of the Protocols) published since the last issue
of this Journal, these materials continue to
reflect and expand upon the original intent of
the drafters of the texts.
  As was the case last year, the papers and topics
in the Journal are the subject of a conference
