Each year, universities throughout the Asia Pacific region are invited to participate in the IASLA Space Law Moot Court Competition, organised by the International Air and Space Law Academy.
The 2017 Asia Pacific Regional Rounds will be held from Tuesday, 4 April 2017 to Friday, 7 April 2017 in Sydney, Australia. Teams compete in 4 preliminary rounds in a round-robin format before advancing to the Regional Finals. The Regional Champions will then advance to the International Finals, scheduled for Thursday, 29 June 2017 and Friday, 29 June 2017 in Pretoria, South Africa.
In order to participate, all you need is 2 to 4 students that want to expand their knowledge in space law and gain valuable experience in international mooting. While knowledge of space law may be an asset, we have found that teams without prior training and experience in space law or even lacking in coaches have been very competitive in space law moot court competitions.
In the Asia Pacific Regional Rounds, we have specific coordinators appointed in selected countries to promote the Competition, assist teams in their registration process and, in some cases, to pursue the organisation of Domestic Funding Rounds to finance teams to participate in the Competition after securing sufficient sponsorship in the near future.
