Travel Law was inspired by a growing number of legal cases related to travel and a tremendous growth in travel in the last decade. The United States hospitality and tourism industry currently employs ten million works, annually adds almost $400 billion to the Gross Domestic Product, generates $45 billion in state and local taxes, contributes almost $100 billion in employee compensation, is among the top three leading employers in 37 states, and caters to 45.6 million international visitors, resulting in a net trade surplus of $21 billion. During the next the next ten years, these numbers are expected to grow by as much as 24%.
The authors of Travel Law are two law professors and a hotel management professor. Collectively, they have published more than twenty books and have served as counsel to cruise ships, hotels, airlines, and a variety of sports and entertainment enterprises.
