An LL.M. in Air and Space Law can be a great choice for many students who are looking for 'the next big thing' in law.

In an era where commercial firms like Virgin Galactic and Tesla, with their SpaceX rockets, are sending people and objects into space, regulations—as well as application of laws—can be in flux. Not to mention the fact that, closer to earth, an increasing number of companies and nations are competition for airspace.

Because of those and other reasons, many choose to pursue an LL.M. in Air and Space Law because it can help get them up-to-speed in the current laws in the space, as well as how the laws are being applied to new technologies and use cases. Indeed, many LL.M.s in Air and Space Law leverage current thinking and research to inform their curriculums, insuring that students have a cutting edge understanding of the field upon graduation.

Accordingly, many degrees in this space include classes in topics like Air Law, Public International Law, Space Law, and Aviation Law; as well as courses in related fields like Telecommunications Law and Security Law.

Beyond LL.M.s in Air and Space Law, some law schools also offer certificate programs in this field, which can be pursued in conjunction with a degree program.

In terms of careers, those who graduate with an LL.M. in Air and Space Law might land jobs in a law firm, working on issues like liability, drafting legislation, or aircraft financing, for example. Some regulatory bodies might also be interested in hiring somebody with expertise in Air and Space Law.
