Where graduates of the IASL are working today

Highlight on our recent graduates:

Dr. Aram Daniel Kerkonian is a Policy Advisor with the Aerospace, Defence and Marine Branch of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, a department of the Government of Canada. Aram joined the government in 2020, shortly after completing his doctorate in space law at McGill University’s Institute of Air and Space Law, where he benefitted tremendously from the unparalleled academic, professional and social development opportunities made available to students of the IASL. In his current day-to-day role, Aram provides analysis and advice to senior management on a variety of issues related to space policy and regulation and Aram is fortunate to work with talented and dedicated public servants – many of whom he first met while participating in IASL-sponsored conferences and events. In addition to serving as an editor and reviewer of various academic journals, as a leading expert on Canadian space law Aram regularly presents and lectures on the subject at the IASL and other institutions.
