The University of Nebraska College of Law NASA Space Law Network initiative is hosting a weekend workshop April 6-7, 2019. This workshop is intended to help students and new scholars focus on publication and scholarly writing in the field of space law. Some travel stipends will be provided via the NASA program award and self-funded attendees are encouraged to register for the workshop.

Conference website, registration, travel reimbursement information, and additional details are available at:

The workshop will feature a mixture of sessions detailing the international and domestic foundations of space law, including multiple practice focus areas, while highlighting holes in current policy or scholarship ripe for discussion. The workshop will also include working sessions, dedicated to developing topics and outlines, and sessions on legal research and “how-to” publish in a variety of forums.

The key objective is that every attendee walks away from the weekend with an idea (or two), the beginning of an outline and questions to be considered, and a plan of action for publishing their work in their desired venue.

The program will provide approximately 25 students from across the country with an opportunity to defray the costs of attending the workshop via a separate application process. Cleveland-Marshall students may apply for a travel reimbursement up to $900.
