Join NSS President Michelle Hanlon as she hosts a panel of young lawyers discussing how to fill the gaps in international space law to support the development of sustainable and successful human communities in space. Today, as we lay the foundation for our evolution into a multi-planetary species, it is more important than ever to assure the proper balance between regulation and development. Hanlon, who is a professor of space law at the University of Mississippi School of Law will provide a brief introduction to space law. The panelists, Laura Brady, Bailey Cunningham, AJ Link, Christiana Paissios, and Sam Thorpe will share their thoughts on how to address issues of space debris, heritage protection, human rights, commercial activity, and the delimitation of space within the current legal and policy framework.
