Space Law Symposium at Cosmos Club

Get ready for an exciting day in space law at, yes, the Cosmos Club in Washington, D.C. (Space lawyers should feel right at home.)

Breakfast, lunch and if we are lucky, a handshake with Rusty Schweickart, among others, is included. Here's the invitation to this excellent, free symposium. (Thank you, Prof. Joanne Gabrynowicz.)
