European Centre for Space Law

The main objective of the European Centre for Space Law (ECSL) is to build up and spread, within Europe and elsewhere, an understanding of the legal framework relevant to space activities. ECSL does this by fostering the exchange of information among interested stakeholders and by helping to improve and promote the teaching of space law. Its aim is to provide updated information on Europe’s contribution to space activities beyond Europe, and therefore to enhance the European position in the field of space law practice, teaching and publications.

The Institute of Space and Telecommunications Law (Université Paris Sud / Campus Paris Saclay) organises an annual international colloquium in Paris on Air and Space Law. The 2014 edition, held in partnership with the ECSL will take place at the Ministry of Research on 30 and 31 October 2014. It will bring together internationally recognised professors and practitioners to discuss new issues in Air & Space Law.
