Nebraska School Launches Space Law Doctorate

By  | 

The University of Nebraska College of Law will open a new frontier in space law by launching a space law doctorate program this fall semester.

The school already offers a one-year program for a master of laws in space, cyber and telecommunications law. Its graduates have gone on to careers working for private companies, federal agencies and military units, as well as for think tanks, consultants and law firms.

Matthew Schaefer is director of the college's Space, Cyber and Telecommunications Law program, and he says the Nebraska law school breaks new ground as the only doctoral-level space law program in the United States.
