Save the Date! The 2021 Nebraska Virtual Space Law Week will be held September 27 - October 1.

The Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law Program at the University of Nebraska College of Law looks forward to the 2021 Nebraska Virtual Space Law Week and other activities.

The 2020 Nebraska Virtual Space Law Week
was held September 28 – October 2nd

On behalf of the Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law Program at the University of Nebraska College of Law we want to thank you for attending a session (or many sessions!) during the 2020 Nebraska Virtual Space Law Week! 

From the Artemis Accords, commercial space launches, spectrum management, military space issues, and COSPAR - we’ve covered the gamut! Not to forget our student and new professional sessions discussing research skills, with the Space Court Foundation, and managing the job search. Between all nine sessions throughout the week, we welcomed just over 400 participants to our virtual halls for rich and vibrant discussions of modern space law issues. 

Recordings of all the sessions are available on the program's Media Hub page.

We particularly want to thank all our speakers and moderators for taking time from their busy schedules to join us this week. Please take a moment to revisit our schedule of events and check out the 27 individuals we spent time with this week, learning from their expertise.

If you enjoyed Nebraska Virtual Space Law Week and want to memorialize the experience, shirts and hoodies are available, and portion of those sales go to the Nebraska Law Space, Cyber, and Telecom Law Student Club to help them fund activities and student experiences. 

Finally, for attorneys seeking Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit hours, the five main sessions were each approved for one hour of Nebraska CLE hours. An attendance report generated after each session was created to show who was in attendance and for how long. A certificate of attendance was attached to the final conference email sent Friday 10/2/2020, with course numbers listed per session. If you are licensed outside of Nebraska you should follow your state’s directions for applying for out of state credit. Your attendance has been reported to the Nebraska Bar Association.

As our Co-Director Professor Jack Beard said today as he closed our final session, “stay safe on land, and peaceful in space.” We wish you well and thank you again.

Notes from the 2019 12th Annual Nebraska Space Law Conference
"Global Perspectives on Space Law and Policy"

We want to thank everyone who joined us at the 12th Annual Nebraska Space Law Conference "Global Perspectives on Space Law and Policy" conference on October 18th. Our world and the technology we create is moving at a rapid pace. It is my hope that conversations like those we’ve enjoyed during this conference prepare us to practice in those environments. Thank you for being a part of it.

Professor Matt Schaefer and Executive Director Magilton were pleased to hand off the resources of the NASA Space Law Network grant to Dennis Burnett and Ryan Noble and share the news of the creation of a United States Center on Space Law at the conference. While Nebraska is an excited collaborator and supporter, the project is not being directly run by the Nebraska Law program and questions are more properly directed at those developing the center. 
Please keep your eyes out for more information.
