BHO Legal has contributed to this year´s Master Programme in Air and Space Law at the International Institute of Air and Space Law of Leiden Law School with a lecture on legal aspects of the European Galileo Programme.
The Master’s Programme in Air and Space Law is a combination of public air law, private air law and space law, both from an international and European perspective. It has a clearly defined European dimension and, without neglecting academic levels, pays specific attention to professional applications, particularly through its internship requirements. The programme has been designed for graduates in law who wish to pursue an advanced master’s study at postgraduate level, and possibly wish to engage in a PhD. The programme is also aimed at international legal practitioners in internationally operating law firms, private companies (e.g. airlines, aircraft parts manufacturers), civil aviation authorities, telecommunication authorities, international and regional organizations and representatives from various governments who wish to specialize in the area of air and space law. This mixed composition of the student body of both master’s students and practitioners stands as a guarantee for the high level of the programme.
The programme is offered by the International Institute of Air and Space Law of the Leiden Law School at Leiden University. The Institute was founded in 1986 and, building upon the chair created for Air Law in 1938, is one of the leading international academic research and teaching institutes in the world, specializing in legal and policy issues regarding aviation and space activities. The relevance and topicality of the academic work of the institute is guaranteed by an extensive exchange of information with the air transport and space industry. The Institute organizes numerous courses and conferences on all aspects of aviation law, space law and policy. It maintains close contacts with national and international organizations and institutions, within and outside Europe.
