Nebraska Space Law Week Marks 14th Year of Annual Space Law Conference

14 Sep 2021    

Space and stars.

Nebraska Law’s Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law Program hosts numerous conferences and events every year, including an annual space law conference in Washington, D.C. that features faculty-authored white papers, invite-only government-industry round-tables, public sessions, and partnerships with leading think tanks and agencies. The program is pleased to continue its fourteen-year tradition of hosting an annual space law conference in the fall, happening virtually September 27 – October 1.

The week features daily substantive webinars, open to all, on modern space law challenges. Participants can register for as many sessions as interest them and sessions are free.

Panels include:

  • Commercial Space: What’s Next for Regulatory Reform?
  • The American Society of International Law Space Law Interest Group Presents the World Speaks Space Series: Africa
  • Spectrum and Space Activities: Future Challenges and Opportunities
  • Artemis Accords:  Expanding and Implementing the Accords & Their Impact on Space Law
  • "What About Everyone Else?" The Law of Armed Conflict and Neutrality and Proportionality in Space: Protecting Neutrals and Civilians in Space

While the program looks forward to returning to in person events in fall 2022, the virtual model allows important conversations on the challenges humanity faces in space to be accessible to individuals across the world, who may not have been able to join the conference in D.C. The Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law program is dedicated to furthering the conversation, even in the face of unprecedented times, at no charge.

Nebraska Space Law Week is Co-Sponsored by the American Society of International Law Space Law Interest Group and the American Branch of the International Law Association.

Since 2008, Nebraska Law has offered degree tracks in space, cyber, and telecommunications law. Graduates of the program have gone on to careers working for private companies like SpaceX; for civilian agencies like the NASA; for military operations such as the U.S. Cyber Command and Space Operations; as well as for think tanks and law firms.
