The emerging legal frontier will have significant impact on our nation’s future. The infusion of space, cyber, and telecommunications law expertise at NU allows NSRI to connect leading scholars of this discipline with various federal agencies. Attacks on our nation’s security through the potential of chemical, biological, and radiological attacks, adds a new dimension to the legal responsibilities for our warfighters and the policies and international guidelines by which they must operate. At no other time in our history has the threats of terrorism posed a grave and imminent danger to our military forces, our citizens and allies. The legal challenges and policies must keep pace with these new and dynamic threats.
“Use and protection of space and cyber assets are a critical component in protecting the nation from WMD attacks and other hostile acts that could severely impact US national security and the national economy. Law, broadly defined to include not just binding international arrangements, but also soft law as well as the adaptation of US national laws, regulations, and related policies is a significant component is enabling the use of, as well as protecting, space and cyber assets. Law can assist in providing consequences for malicious behavior, it can help educate, but it can also, if appropriately adapted, fuel innovation and use of technologies that advance national security.”
NU provides expert instruction and research on all major space and cyber regulation from formal binding treaties, to “soft law,” “rules of the road,” national space legislation and regulations, and even state and local regulation of space and cyber activities. This emerging legal frontier, critical to our national security, is still largely undefined. The University of Nebraska provides experience and research on all major space regulation in the United States and has advised governments throughout the world on space traffic management, space asset security, legal protocol development, and related areas in cyber and telecommunications law.Due to the unique expertise resident at NSRI/NU, our faculty researchers have significant experience in the various types of law and regulation. Our researchers are able to explore possibilities and problems with any particular proposed legal solution and explore options to binding legal solutions.
