Space Law

Postby afrothunder » Thu Oct 06, 2011 4:17 pm

Not sure if this is the right place for this question, but it'll do for now.

I was wondering if there are any schools that are particularly good for students interested in Space Law. By that I mean both international laws determining the use of outer space, as well as corporate/business law programs that would help a student understand the unique legal challenges of a company dedicated to opportunities in space. In my brief googlings I've seen that Nebraska and 'Ole Miss have programs, but I'm not really interested in going to those areas and I'd like to go to a school that provides a back up on a national level. My numbers are 168/3.5 in the honors program of a tier I private school.

Er... what? BU has a space law class, but I always thought of it as the law school equivalent of "rocks for jocks" as an UGrad science course.

Just kidding. This is not an area of law that should influence your choice of school.

I don't think it's an awful idea. It's an area of law that is going to be more prominent pretty soon and there are probably gaps in existing law that would need to be written. And space has so much to offer. Looking outward can teach us about ourselves at the most basic level. Focusing our satellites inward makes phones and the internet and television work better, which brings the world closer together. It's a good cause and since it could be a corporate gig, I'll get paid ok.

+1 Yes to focusing on international law and space law. Two sound career choices.

I hear Yale's new ISS campus has a really great view, but the classes there lack a certain gravity.

If you're interested in space become an aerospace engineer.

I heard Cooley is opening up another satellite campus on the Moon.

See what I did there? Satellite? Moon? Oh, you'll get it later.

dinosaur law has been around quite a while already; over millions of years, it slowly turned into oil and gas law

You guys are so pessimistic. The opportunities in Space Law are endless...literally infinite, and expanding all the time!
