|Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition|
Each year ECSL organises, together with the International Institute of Space Law (IISL), the European Round of the Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition. Regional winners from Europe, Asia-Pacific and the United States then compete in the world finals, held in conjunction with the annual International Astronautical Congress.
The final of the Lachs Moot Court Competition has the distinction of being judged by three sitting judges of the International Court of Justice. To participate in the competition, all that is needed is two or three law students interested in expanding their knowledge of space law and gaining valuable international experience.
Further information on the competition can be found on the IISL website
