India To Set-Up Air & Space Law Centre
The Ram Manohar Lohia National Law University (RMLNLU) would shortly start courses on air and space law, which would provide to those aspiring to become legal experts in various airlines and research organisations like Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).
The university would have a specific centre for the purpose, which, in association with a Canada based university would provide six-month certificate and two-year LLM degree with ‘micro-specialisation' in air and space law. Other courses will include cyber laws and information technology law, law and medicine, telecom and cyber laws, intellectual property laws, etc.
RMLNLU would be the first centre of its kind in India, though the National Law University, Hyderabad also plans to start such courses.
There would be 50 seats in each course for which there would be an open entrance. The LLB (honours) students who have completed their fifth semester would be eligible to pursue the course along with their regular course.
For LLM (with micro-specialisation in the said subjects), the students will have to undergo a four-month training in McGill university, Canada, the cost of which will be borne by the students only.
