Alongside space exploration comes the necessity of special regulations. In 1967, the Outer Space Treaty was signed by the U.S., the UK, and the USSR. It provides the foundation for space law that endures today.
During the last 50+ years, many changes in space study and exploration have occurred: notably, sending the first artificial satellite to space tourism. That?s why space law will become a more popular discipline across legal and non-legal specialists.
To help you get started, Lawrina has invited the prof. Mark J. Sundahl, the Director of the Global Space Law Center at Cleveland State University and a member of NASA?s Regulatory and Policy Committee, to give an open lecture: ?To Infinity and Beyond: Space Law 101.?

- What are the main rules and regulations?
- As a lawyer, what do you need to know about space law?
