The Space Law Review – Edition 4

Bird & Bird has contributed to the 4th edition of ‘The Space Law Review’ book published by The Law Reviews.

 

The book includes ‘a practical overview of the legal and regulatory frameworks governing space and satellite activities across key jurisdictions worldwide. With a focus on the most salient recent developments in this fast-evolving sector, it analyses the distinctive features of the law and commercial practice in each jurisdiction and looks at potential future trends’.

‘The Space Law Review’ contains updates from Bird & Bird’s Satellite & Space activities experts, with Thomas Jones, Matthew Bovaird and Dylan McGirr contributing the chapter on Australia, and Willy Mikalef covering France. Additional jurisdictions featured in the book include Brazil, Canada, China, Estonia, Germany, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Thailand, USA and the United Kingdom.

For each jurisdiction, authors commented on regulation in practice, highlighted the distinctive characteristics of the national framework, outlined the current developments and also provided an outlook for the future.

The Editors Preface praises the national insights provided by the authors “Their practical knowledge of their respective legal and regulatory frameworks – and related challenges, risks and solutions – makes this book unique. The contributors' expertise will grow in importance as the value of the space domain and the extent of space applications is increasingly recognised by states, the space industry, other industries and international organisations.
