ECSL mourns the loss of great space jurist, Prof. Vladimír Kopal
It is with great sadness that the ECSL announces the death of Professor Vladimír Kopal. He was a pioneer of space law and had an exemplary career in academics and in the UN, serving as a delegate of his country since the creation of UN COPUOS and twice as Chairman of its Legal Subcommittee. A detailed biography of the many achievements of Professor Kopal can be found on this link to the IAF website.
Professor Kopal served on the board of the ECSL for many years and continued to be active in ECSL events. By special invitation, he participated as a judge at the Manfred Lachs Regional Rounds in Rome in 2013. He was also instrumental in setting up the ECSL’s National Point of Contact in the Czech Republic.
He will be sorely missed by all at the ECSL.
