NALSAR established the Centre for Aerospace and Defence Laws (CADL) in 2005 with the objective of promoting the development of aviation, space, maritime and defence laws and policies. Since then, NALSAR-CADL has been promoting the study of Aerospace and Defence Laws by introducing courses, conducting National and International Conferences, Moot Courts, Workshops and also publishing Newsletters, Journals, Books and Articles, besides awarding a few M.Phils. and Ph.Ds. in the said areas.
The objective of introducing these unique and value added courses is to cater to the needs of unprecedented aviation growth coupled with commercialization and privatization of aerospace, defence and maritime industries, which calls for thousands of skilled manpower to meet not only managerial requirements but also legal compliances that arise from the high value transactions.
