The Air and Space Law Competition provides suggested topics, making thesis development a fairly straightforward process. For example, here are two of this year's topics for an October 2, 2009 deadline:
3. Whether the Environmental Protection Agency has the authority to regulate the greenhouse gas emissions of aircraft.
4. Whether the Transportation Security Administration is exceeding its authority to regulate security at our nation's airports.
Length: 4000 words, including endnotes.
