Space Law Committee


Chair's Message



Welcome to the Space Law Committee! For the last half century, the laws that govern human activities in outer space have been primarily focused on regulating government space programs. Today, however, we stand at the precipice of a new era in spaceflight. With the retirement of the Space Shuttle, private companies are preparing to assume many of the missions traditionally undertaken by government agencies and to open new markets in outer space.

With this transition, space law will face many new challenges. To help the legal community meet these challenges, the Section of Science & Technology Law has formed the Space Law Committee, with the mission of providing educational resources to the legal community about the unique legal, business and technical challenges presented by space operations. We invite you to join this endeavor by joining the Committee, participating in Committee events, and contributing to Committee projects.


Please contact me with your ideas.


Best,
Maria-Vittoria “Giugi” Carminati, JD, LLM

About the Committee

The space industry is in a period of transition.

With this transition, space companies and government agencies will face many new challenges. To help the legal community meet these challenges, the Section of Science & Technology Law has formed the Space Law Committee, with the mission of providing educational resources to the legal community about the unique legal, business and technical challenges presented by space operations.
