Internship Air & Space Law


After the completion of the scheduled lectures, students are required to take a 6-8 week mandatory internship in an institution dealing with either Air or Space Law (airline, airport, space business, law firm, civil aviation or other governmental authority or international organization). The internship aims at further enhancing their capacity to apply the acquired knowledge, research and practical skills in a professional environment, building upon the integrative insight and understanding developed in the last term. During the internship, students experience and often contribute to the implementation of regulations and policies of air and space Law in practice, and train their research, writing, presentation, communication and teamwork skills. At the end of the internship, students are requested to submit an internship report signed by their internship supervisor.
