The ability to delve into a particular niche area of interest with the continuous support of passionate faculty members is the Law School’s point of distinction. The University recognises that Space Law is an increasingly important and growing area of law and provides students like me with opportunities we never considered possible. During my studies I had the opportunity to work as a research assistant with the Research Unit on Military Law and Ethics, focusing on Military Space Systems for the Space Security Index 2017.
