C|M|Law’s Global Space Law Center and Space Law Resources

C|M|Law’s Global Space Law Center (GSLC), directed by Professor Mark Sundahl, is dedicated to the study of space law and training next-generation space lawyers. GSLC is the only law school center in the nation focused on the law of outer space. Space law is made up of a variety of international agreements, treaties, conventions, and United Nations General Assembly resolutions—as well as rules and regulations of international organizations. These documents address numerous issues such as settling disputes, liability for damages caused by space objects, preserving space and Earth environments, and the use of space-related technologies.

The Law Library has numerous resources available on Space Law, such as The Politics and Perils of Space Exploration and The Handbook of Space Law. Journals on the topic include Air and Space Law and Journal of Space Law. The McGill Institute of Air and Space Law Publications are available through our HeinOnline subscription, which includes the complete Annals of Air and Space Law along with fifty additional titles. 

Our Space Law Research Guide is a great place to start for anyone interested in the topic.
