Air & Space Law — Sharajah, UAE

University of Sharjah

The College of Law at the University of Sharjah invites submission of abstracts/full papers for the International Conference “Contemporary Issues in Air & Space Laws“, February 22-23, 2017. The deadline is Oct. 23, 2016.

Air travel has become both suitable and relatively inexpensive allowing passengers to travel to more places then ever before. The Air transport industry is a transnational one generating billions of dollars in revenue, employing millions of people, and involving many countries worldwide. There is a growing need to regulate space activities as more countries establish and expand space programs. The nature of space activities has changed from state-governed into private enterprises that have created several challenges to space law as well.

In light of these developments and challenges, the University of Sharjah College of Law, a pioneer institution providing legal education in the UAE, is organizing an international conference to address these issues at the national and international levels. It is hoped that the outcomes of the conference, through presentations and discussions, will inform policymakers on the solutions to many of the challenges air and space industries face.

Deadline: submissions of abstracts for the conference should be sent via email to The deadline for submissions is October 23, 2016.
