About the IASLA Space Law Moot Court Competition

The IASLA Space Law Moot Court Competition was created on 1 September 2010 to provide an opportunity for students to participate in an international moot court competition in space law.


          • The Objects of the Competition are:


        - to promote education and awareness of the principles of space law among students, academics and lawyers;


  • - to create an international moot court competition devoted to space law that is organised transparently, fairly and professionally;


- to encourage the peaceful settlement of international space law disputes while recognising the diversity of the students united together through participation in a moot court competition;


- to promote the development of skills in professional oral and written advocacy; and


- to administer the moot court competition fairly, impartially, competently and effectively through the application of specific rules.


The Principal Administrator of the IASLA Space Law Moot is Prof Dr Ricky J Lee.


To participate in the IASLA Space Law Moot Court Competition, organised by the International Air and Space Law Academy, all you need are 2 to 4 interested and enthusiastic students who want to learn a bit about international law and space law, gain some experience in international advocacy and compete against other teams from many different countries in the world. While existing knowledge of space law is an asset, it is certainly not a prerequisite and many students participating in the Competition would not have such an advantage and would be more than competitive.


The cost of participating is also substantially less than comparable mooting competitions.
