TOWARDS SPACE ARBITRATION AND BEYOND (Space Court Fndtn), Apr 14, 2021, virtual, 11:00 am-1:00 pm ET

The Space Court Foundation and Clifford Chance will hold a webinar on April 14, 2021 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm on “Towards Space Arbitration and Beyond.”

More information and a registration link are on the event’s website, which says:
