What is the Course?

Traditionally, aviation law has been in the hands of the public sector, airline law firms and large law firms, due to the speciality of the subject. In short, training in very specific areas of this law has not been the subject of dissemination.

With this specialisation course,Comillas Pontifical University and the Spanish Association of Aeronautical and Space Law (AEDAE), offer high quality training, from the hand of the leading practising professionals in the sector and the Public Administration.

The course places special emphasis on the student acquiring complementary knowledge necessary for their better performance in the sector such as: business part, contract drafting, data protection, cybersecurity, compliance, and aeronautical and space English.

Why the Course?

Exclusive subjects will be taught such as: airport management, airport economics and privatisation, Handling analysis and its complex legal regime, Aircraft contracts and their financing, Military contracts and civil contracts, among many other subjects.

In the field of space, this program provides the necessary tools to easily deal with issues related to the legal regime applicable to activities carried out in outer space, whether by governmental or private entities. In turn, the legal training is complemented by scientific and political-economic issues in order to understand the environment in which they operate.

The space module has an unprecedented business and institutional participation, both nationally and internationally, highlighting the participation in the faculty of TEDAE, CDTI, IGN and the European Space Agency.

Students who so wish may carry out INTERNSHIPS IN COMPANIES that have signed an exclusive agreement with the University, which will provide them with the practical experience to further their career, both in the technical or legal field, as well as in the aerospace sector, and to expand their network of contacts. Comillas Pontifical University is a pioneer in offering this possibility, and has extensive experience in opening doors to employment through other programs related to the field of transport.


The methodology of the course is based on transmitting the necessary tools to provide comprehensive advice on all aspects of the aerospace industry. From both a theoretical and practical point of view, the lecturers: civil servants, professors, practising lawyers or heads of the different departments of companies in the sector, will transmit:

- Their practical experience in the resolution of various contractual, judicial and administrative disputes through the analysis of texts and the resolution of real cases.

- Their specialised legal knowledge, essential for legal advice in the aerospace field.

- Students who so wish may carry out non-compulsory internships in the legal departments of companies in the aerospace sector and the companies that provide services to them.

The CPEDAE offers students, both inside and outside Spain, the best of new technologies applied to the teaching activity, so that it can be taught in synchronous or simultaneous bimodality format, allowing the student to attend in person or remotely from home or work and ask questions and interact with the teacher and classmates in real time, without noticing any difference with the situation of the student in the face-to-face mode.
