The LSU Space Law Society seeks to:
1) Accumulate interest and knowledge in the field of space law amongst the students of the LSU Law Center.
2) Produce ideas and literature surrounding contemporary problems and affairs in the space industry.
3) Foster connections between LSU law students and professionals in the space industry.
4) Promote professional and educational opportunities in the space industry to the students of the LSU Law Center.

THE LSU SPACE LAW MOOT COURT TEAM
International Institute of Space Law (IISL): Manfred Lachs Moot Court Competition
The LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center will participate in the 2017-2018 IISL Space Law Moot Court Competition. The below paragraphs are excerpts from the IISL Moot Court website, linked in the button below.
"Since its inception by the International Institute of Space Law (IISL) in 1992, the Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition has grown to cover four world regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Africa. More than 60 teams participate yearly in this competition. Registered teams get exclusive on-line access to papers of the IISL's Colloquium Proceedings from 2005 to date. Also many useful and interesting documents are freely accessible through the resources page of this website.
"Regional winners receive financial support to attend the World Finals. The IISL's Lachs competition is particularly distinguished by the tradition of judges of the International Court of Justice presiding over and judging the World Final. The World Finals competition takes place within the framework of the IISL's annual Colloquium, which is a contained event in the International Astronautical Congress held on a different continent each year. The Lachs competition offers an unparalleled learning experience to all teams at all levels in a fair and cordial environment."
