Book Launch ‘Space Law 101 for Beginners
August 13, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm WAT
Olisa Agbakoba Legal in collaboration with Learnspace Foundation, cordially invites you to the launch of the book titled “SPACE LAW 101 FOR BEGINNERS”
In light of the many new developments in the field of space Law, this book provides a clear overview of the legal aspects of a wide range of current and evolving space activities.
The book discusses space laws, space law sources, the latest developments, and challenges affecting international space law, the most prominent of which is the commercialization of space law by the private sector.
The involvement of private actors in space has raised many new legal issues including questions about liability and intellectual property rights and as this book demonstrates, the current outer space treaties are largely obsolete and incapable of dealing with legal issues arising from the commercial use of space.
This text provides a concise yet comprehensive guide for lawyers, policymakers, academics, students, and professionals, and it does not matter if you have no legal background. The book covers a wide range of issues and the analysis is thorough and will provide even knowledgeable readers, with new perspectives.
