Laura Montgomery

     Author


Laura Montgomery practices space law and writes science fiction with a bourgeois, legal slant. Her most recent book, MERCENARY CALLING, is a tale of exoplanets, terrorists, and lawyers. She also writes space opera in her WAKING LATE series. Her author site is at lauramontgomery.com.

On the legal side, Laura teaches space law at Catholic University's Columbus School of Law. In her private practice she specializes in regulatory space law, with an emphasis on commercial space transportation and the Outer Space Treaties. She testified last year to the space subcommittees of the House and Senate on matters of regulation and international obligation. She writes and edits the space law blog GroundBasedSpaceMatters.com and speaks regularly on space law issues.
