About Air and Space Law

While the aviation and space industries have taken off, the non-technical aspects of it have gained prominence only in recent years. Offered by the top law institutes in India, the specialisation can be opted for majorly at the postgraduate level.

Air and Space Law is quite a complex subject that can only be studied by a collaborative effort in knowledge production in the topics like security and safety laws, liability issues, environment, air route structures, regulation of air services and bilateral air agreements, and so on. 

Apart from it being a unique field of law, Air and Space Law open multiple job opportunities. These may include working in internationally operating law firms, civil aviation, telecommunications organisations and governmental organisations like ISRO. Not to mention the attractive internship opportunities at NASA that an Air and Space Law course comes with.
