›Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition
The Manfred Lachs Moot Court Competition is a unique international competition, now in its 23rd year. The Lachs Competition involves a hypothetical international dispute giving rise to significant issues of modern international space law before the International Court of Justice. This Competition currently is structured into four geographic regions: Europe, Africa, the Asia Pacific, and North America and is open for teams of 2 to 3 law students and students enrolled in schools other than law where space law or public international law forms a part of the teaching program. Each school may send one team.
Regional winning teams receive funding for their participation in the World Finals which in 2014 will be held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on September 30, and October 2. The Lachs Competition has the unique distinction of having the Final round judged by a panel of sitting Judges of the International Court of Justice, the highuest judicial organ of the United Nations Organization.
The Lachs Competition takes part in the Annual Colloquium of the International Institute of Space Law, which gathers the world’s top space lawyers, in conjunction with the 65th International Astronautical Congress, the world's largest convention of global space agencies and space industry.
