IISL To Host Special 50th Anniversary Lectures at Prague Colloquium

To mark its 50th anniversary this year, the International Institute of Space Law (IISL) is hosting several events. The first, a seminar on Space Law and Policy 2010, was held two weeks ago in Washington, DC. The next event will be in conjunction with the IISL Colloquium in Prague, the Czech Republic, as part of the International Astronautical Congress from September 27-October 1, 2010.

The “Nandasiri Jasentuliyana Keynote Lecture on Space Law,” named in honor of the immediate past president of the IISL, will consist of three lectures on the history of the IISL, the history of space law, and the history of two of the early pioneers of space law (Prof. V. Mandl and Prof. A. Meyer). The lectures will be followed by a Young Scholars Session.

The IISL also will republish the seminal 1972 book on space law by the late Judge Manfred Lachs, a former IISL President and President of the International Court of Justice.
