Continuing Legal Education and Programming

CLE Programming

As a service to its alumni, Nebraska Law, in partnership with the student organizations, offers multiple continuing legal education opportunities to all alumni. These programs are typically held over the lunch hour. Because programming develops throughout the course of the semester, registration is exclusively online and alumni are encouraged to check this website routinely as programs are added continuously throughout the semester. Non-alumni may also register for these programs at a cost of $20, payable at the door.

Many new satellite technologies, and business case uses for those technologies, are being developed-- from large geostationary satellites with increased throughput and space situational awareness possibilities, to large constellation, mass-produced smaller low-earth orbit satellites, to cube and micro sats with increased capabilities and deployments from launch vehicles en mass, to “cellular” satellite models and assembly in space. Additionally, some technology changes such as commoditization of satellites and lower launch costs could impact business models involving other new technologies, such as on-orbit satellite servicing, although market segmentation could also result. In addition to satellite technology advancements, many other new space technologies and business models potentially will be coming online in the near future, including those for new launch systems and asteroid mining. These developments raise numerous issues for space traffic management, surveillance and tracking, orbital debris, spectrum sharing and interference, on-orbit or in-space regulation of space activities by governments, and national licensing standards of remote sensing systems. Broader questions of what role government versus the private sector should play as well as what changes, if any, will be needed to US commercial space regulation, and international soft-law, to address these potential new challenges arise as well.
