This Just In: Space Law: A Treatise

Space law is an area of International Law that has developed massively in the last fifty years. Francis Lyall, from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, and Paul B. Larsen, from Georgetown Law Centre and formerly a lawyer for the Office of the US Secretary of Transportation, have been involved this area of law since the early 1960s, when both taught at the McGill Institute of Air and Space Law in Montreal. Both professors currently teach Space Law at their respective universities.

This book has extensive coverage of the literature of space law; its discussion provides an excellent source for both student and practitioners. Covered are major treaties and agreements and national laws and regulations and how they affect the use of space by governments, militaries, and commercial interests. In addition, the treatise has a chapter on how environmental regulation intertwines with space law.
