The Nebraska Law Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Team and their alumni coaches will travel to Washington D.C. for this annual competition. The competition is based on a hypothetical space law dispute before the International Court of Justice. Participating teams are required to submit a formal written argument for both the Applicant State and the Respondent State on the legal issues of the hypothetical case and to argue each side of the case before panels of judges in their respective region. The winning teams from each Regional Round meet in the international final rounds, which are held in conjunction with the annual IISL Colloquium on the Law of Outer Space. The Final Round is traditionally judged by three judges of the International Court of Justice. This unique feature makes the Manfred Lachs Moot Court one of the most prestigious moot court competitions in the world.
