Space and Technology Law | L4631

Space and Technology Law is not one particular area of law. Rather it is best thought of as a combination of numerous areas of policy and law (including the Communications Act, the COMSAT Act, the Defense Production Act, the Land Remote Sensing Act, the Commercial Space Act, the Arms Export Control Act, the Export Administration Act, and several other bodies of law) that come together to govern the Space and High Technology industries. There is extensive overlap between what is considered high tech and what is considered space and how they are treated from a legal and policy standpoint. The course explores many of these interrelated issues.
