The ECSL is inviting young scholars and professionals to take part in the fifth edition of the Young Lawyers' Symposium (YLS), which will be organised as a full day event on the 24 of April 2020 at ESA ESOC in Germany.

The aim of the YLS is to allow early career scholars and professionals to present on a space law related topic in an international forum, exchange ideas and network amongst themselves.

The YLS 2020 will centre around three themed panels, which will consider legal aspect relating to:

  1. The legality of the use of force in outer space
  2. Legal tools to guarantee space safety
  3. Use of outer space against climate change and environmental crises

Invitation to submit an abstract:  

Young scholars and professionals (35 and under) are invited to submit a 500-word abstract on a topic relating to the theme of one of the three panels. Selections of speakers will be made on the basis of their submitted abstract. The Abstract should give an indication of what the speaker will address in a 10min presentation.

The call for abstracts is now open until the 5th of March 2020 at 24.00 (CET). Abstracts will be selected by Board Members of the ECSL, and we aim to inform selected authors by the 15th of March 2020.
