Sundahl Speaks at ABA Meeting on the Arbitration of Space-Related Disputes

C|M|LAW Associate Professor and Associate Dean Mark Sundahl participated on a panel regarding the arbitration of space-related disputes at the Spring Meeting of the ABA International Law Section on April 25th in Washington, D.C.  As commercial and governmental activity in space increases, the need to resolve disputes arising from space activity has also grown.  The adoption of a new treaty regarding the finance of space assets and the advent of private human spaceflight will likely add to the number of arbitrations.  In 2011, the ICC Permanent Court of Arbitration adopted new Optional Rules for the Arbitration of Disputes Relating to Outer Space Activities in order to provide a new rule set tailored to the idiosyncratic features of space law and transactions involving satellites and launch services. The panel explained the nature of these new rules and the benefits of choosing this rule set when arbitrating space-related disputes.
