Lauren Bydalek, ’22, Joshua Lee, ’22 and Amelia Ruffalo, ’23, represented Nebraska Law and the Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law program in the national 2022 Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court competition. 

 The competition was based on a hypothetical space law dispute before the International Court of Justice. Participating teams were required to submit a formal written argument for both the Applicant State and the Respondent State on the legal issues of the hypothetical case and to argue each side of the case before panels of judges in their respective region.

 The team is coached by Elsbeth Magilton, executive director of the Space, Cyber, and Telecommunications Law Program and the Nebraska Governance and Technology Center, and Professor Frans von der Dunk, Harvey & Susan Perlman Alumni and Othmer Professor of Space Law. Nathan Johnson, ’15 LLM, is a Manfred Lachs competition regional organizer.
