Bird & Bird’s offices in Australia and France have contributed to the 3rd edition of the ‘The Space Law Review’ book published by The Law Reviews.
The book contains an overview of the legal and regulatory frameworks governing space and satellite activities within various jurisdictions across the globe. It highlights the most recent developments within the sector, incorporating the challenges faced and solutions devised from the past year, and also potential future trends.
Bird & Bird contributed an overview of the national legal, regulatory and policy framework for Australia and France, with Thomas Jones and Tom Macken contributing for Australia, and Willy Mikalef for France.
The editor of the book, Joanne Wheeler MBE , commented that "The importance of The Space Law Review and its content written by experts across the world is growing each year as the value of the space domain and applications from space activities are understood to an enhanced level. New applications of satellite technology are brought into use and the commercial revenues from the industry are more widely recognised."
