Space Law and Policy

Prerequisites: None

Exam Type: No Exam

The goal of this course is to introduce students to the practice of space law and policy in the United States and at an international level. We will start with an exploration of the basics of both fields, including their key founding texts and managing structures. We will then examine in greater detail the roles of international, national and entrepreneurial levels of space law and policy governance. We will address the on-going debates currently challenging the space sector, among which space debris, satellite constellations, the US Space Force, planetary defense and space resource utilization.
