Nebraska Space Law Conference

Got plans for commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the Outer Space Treaty?

Let's make some: Professor Matt Schaefer, Director of University of Nebraska College of Law's Space and Telecommunications Law Initiative sends this invitation to UNL's
Space & Telecom Law Conference, "Security and Risk Management in a New Space Era: Military, Commercial and Tourism Dimensions," in Lincoln, Nebraska, March, 2, 2007, marking the treaty's anniversary year.

Sounds super. And look who'll be in Lincoln for the event. UNL has
set for itself the goal of becoming a space law powerhouse, and indeed the school has made important friends in the field. Take a look at the agenda (and note the military time as listed, that's probably for the local Nebraska STRATCOM folks, who of course, are always punctilious):
