To the Moon and Beyond: C|M|LAW’s Space Law Program and Materials

C|M|LAW’s Global Space Law Center has redesigned and relaunched its website.  Professor Mark Sundhal, the Director of the Space Law program also announced the Article XI Project which promises to transform the way in which countries and private space companies share information about their space missions as humanity returns en masse to the moon. There are 9 missions to the moon planned for 2022 alone, and it is expected to grow to significantly more in future years.

For Space Law related materials, check out the HeinOnline’s   Air and Space Law database.  This database “covers the multitude of ways humans interact with and explore the earthly skies and distant reaches of outer space.”  Topics include “the role of aviation in an interconnected global economy”; aviation’s “function as a means of travel, airline deregulation, passenger screening protocols, administrative bodies and more”; and “the advances in and impact of space exploration in day-to-day technologies, from the 20th century’s race to the moon, space shuttle disasters, proliferation of satellites, and the increasing numbers of commercial entities and their stakes in outer space.”  Database materials include books, periodicals, scholarly articles, US Code Title 51, selected US Public Law legislative histories, US Congressional Committee prints and hearings, US Code of Federal Regulations Title 14Congressional Research Service ReportsUS Government Accountability Office Reports, as well as links to selected organizational websites and research guides (such as the C|M|LAW Library’s Space Law Research Guide).  As with all HeinOnline databases, access to the Air and Space Law database is available off campus with a CSU ID and PIN.
