It is with satisfaction and utmost delight that the Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies births its maiden journal on air and space law. Attention in Nigeria is currently being given to activities occurring in the air and space and this journal serves as one of the very first on the subject in Nigeria. This journal promises to further contribute to knowledge by educating and enlightening readers on pressing issues in the air and space sector. In order to guarantee a wide-range exchange of ideas, the journal will continuously receive manuscripts from scholars all over the world. The articles to be published in the journal will be such that will ensure that it is a leading authority on air and space law in Nigeria and also place it on same footing with its counterparts worldwide. In this maiden edition, the journal displays works from learned scholars from various jurisdictions who have dealt with topical issues on both aviation and space law. Although not exclusively bordering on Nigeria, this maiden edition mirrors practices in the Nigerian aviation industry.  The eight articles cover aspects of aviation and space law respectively. In relation to space law, the challenges of the existing legal regime of outer space in making adequate provision to prevent space debris is discussed as well as the legal regime of outer space.
