Space Law and Policy One-day Course for Students
ISPL’s space policy and law one-day course for students will be on Saturday, 30 April 2016 in London.
Thanks to the generous support of Surrey Satellite Technology Limited, the only charge will be a £10 registration fee.
No previous knowledge of law is required. Students on the course may be studying law, governance, engineering, space-related medicine, or other subjects. Only full-time university students may attend.
One-day course for students at university level
The course will be taught by ISPL’s Director, Sa’id Mosteshar, and by Neil Stevens, space contracts and insurance specialist and ISPL Faculty Member.
Topics that will be introduced:
Space environment and technology
Space activities such as communication, earth observation and space tourism
International and national law
Current and future trends
A suggested reading list is available for those wishing to look at the primary treaties and documents of space law or the space environment prior to the course. Need further information? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that this one-day course for students does not carry academic credit. There will be no examination, but there will be ample time for questions, discussion, and a case study.
Please download and email the required registration information.
For students unable to attend ISPL’s course, or anyone interested in an introduction to the topics, two books were recently published. A Space Law Essentials Textbook and Casebook were published by authors at the University of Graz and the European Space Agency. Further information about the books is here.
ISPL also offers a 3-day course in space policy and law for practitioners, government personnel and other professionals active in the space sector. The next course will be in October 2016.
