The Leiden Air and Space Law programme is unique. Our teaching and research has a clearly defined European dimension and is in line with the highest academic standards. At the same time, the programme focuses on professional applications, particularly through its internship requirements.
The International Institute of Air and Space Law (IIASL), which houses this advanced master's specialisation, is one of the leading international academic research and teaching institutes in this field. The Institute maintains close relations with national and international organisations and institutions worldwide and enjoys the guidance of a prestigious International Advisory Board.

For who?
This programme is specifically designed for:
  • law gradudates wishing to pursue a challenging advanced master's study at postgraduate level, possibly followed by a PhD position;
  • legal practitioners in internationally operating law firms, private companies (e.g. airlines, aircraft parts manufacturers), civil aviation authorities, telecommunications authorities, international and regional organisations and representatives from governments wishing to specialise in the area of air and space law.


taal van onderwijs100% en
You will learn not only the specifics of international air and space law in the narrow sense, but also about the multifold relationships with general law at the supranational, international, regional, EU and domestic levels. These interrelationships are highly complex and require proficiency in many skills, including legislative and case analysis and comparative methodology.

Michel Adam
My research, analytical and critical thinking skills were continuously challenged and strengthened. The Institute provides the perfect environment for those who not only want to acquire a comprehensive background in air and space law, but also want to hone key skills for their professional objectives.

Through interactive lectures, assignments, participation in moot courts, and the high expectations of the Institute's team, my research, analytical and critical thinking skills were continuously challenged and strengthened.

Leiden provides the perfect balance of culture, education and thorough training for future legal endeavours.

Never before has my intellect been tested, treated and trained as it was while I was pursuing my Adv. Masters in Air and Space Law. The relationship built up between Leiden and myself is permanent. Being housed perfectly between a giant on its left (U.S.A.) and a giant of the future (Asia) on its right, Leiden provides the perfect balance of culture, education and thorough training for future legal endeavours.
Mildred Troegeler
The programme strikes the right balance between academic rigour and real-world applicability by exploring different, interlinked areas of aviation and space law and looking beyond its purely legal aspects.

Besides academic excellence and direct contact with leading experts, the programme provides you with the opportunity to build a professional and personal network all over the world.
