Southern Methodist University, USA

Pauline Hodencq

J.D. Candidate, SMU Dedman School of Law


Pauline Hodencq is currently attending Southern Methodist University (SMU) Dedman School of Law as a second-year law student. She is particularly interested in the fields of Restructuring and Bankruptcy. She was selected as the new Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Air Law & Commerce for SMU Law Review. While this will allow her to further immerse herself in the field, she will also get the opportunity to bring awareness to emerging Aviation topics by publishing new timely scholarship. She wrote a comment that was recently published that discusses a novel issue at the crossroads between Bankruptcy and Aviation. While still a law student, Pauline plans to further leave a mark at her school and intends on founding the first Air & Space Law student organization at Dedman School of Law.
