KIIT Law School (KLS) organized a Webinar on the topic “Space Law and Regulations” on 28th April 2022. The webinar talk was delivered by Dr. Ricky J. Lee, Professor at Jesus College, Cambridge University.
Dr. Lee, a world renowned authority in the field of Space Law, discussed the evolution of space regulations and how the countries have eventually been taking part in its process starting from the Outer Space Treaty to the Moon Treaty. He analyzed why most of the countries are yet to ratify the obligations under these regulatory frameworks devoid of the aspects of liability.
Dr. Lee also took a few questions and explained the privatization of outer space, the role of India in its space exploration activities and the need for a specific regulatory framework which may lead India to a driving position across the global order.
Prof. (Dr.) Bhabani Prasad Panda, Director, KLS interacted with the speaker and conveyed participants’ eagerness to harness long term association and guidance from Dr. Lee’s enormous expertise. The session, organized by Assistant Professors, Dr. Bishwa Kallyan Dash and Ms. Jinia Kundu, was attended by faculty members and students of KLS.
