Journal of Space Law Vol. 36, No. 2 Now Available

by Joanne Irene Gabrynowicz with the blog faculty

This volume of the JOURNAL OF SPACE LAW contains most of the papers presented at the Earth Observation, Environment, Space, and Remote Sensing Law in the Pacific Rim: Meeting and Live Blogcast (Meeting) hosted by the National Center for Remote Sensing, Air, and Space Law at the University of Mississippi School of Law (Center) and held in Hawaii, U.S., on June 16 – 18, 2010.

The purpose of the Meeting was to build upon the success of the first Pacific Rim National Space Law Summit (Summit) hosted by the Center in 2009. The 2009 meeting focused on the national space laws of Pacific Rim nations.  The 2010 meeting addressed the law of Earth Observation, the environment and related topics of various Pacific Rim nations. Like the first event, this meeting also provided a forum for an in-depth experience in which the participants had the opportunity to learn from one another and to discuss, in detail, remote sensing and related law and their developing features in the Pacific Rim. As with the original Summit experts from Australia, China, Hong Kong, (special administrative region of China), Japan, Korea (South), the United States of America and, the United Nations participated. New to this year’s gathering were scholars from the Group on Earth Observations, Colombia, and Mexico. The private bar was represented as well this year with practitioners from the Hawaiian, U.S. and Sydney, Australia bar. Also new this year was an interdisciplinary paper addressing both science and law.

Journal of Space Law Vol. 36, No. 1 Now Available

by Joanne Irene Gabrynowicz with the blog faculty

This issue of the Journal of Space Law features student research. This issue’s preview articles are by three awardees of research scholarships from the National Center for Remote Sensing, Air, and Space Law of the University of Mississippi School of Law. Mr. Nicholas D. Welly applies the ideas of 2009 Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences, Elinor Ostrom, regarding economic governance of a commons to space, a legal global commons in his article, Enlightened State-Interest—A Legal Framework for Protecting the “Common Interest of All Mankind” from Hardinian Tragedy. Mr. Paul Ordyna considers an activity with virtually no track record—commercial human spaceflight— in light of practices employed by a centuries-old industry by closely examining track records in his article, Insuring Human Space Flight: An Underwriter’s Dilemma. Also considering the application of new ideas to old problems is Mr. Surya Gablin Gunasekara’s article, The March of Science: Fourth Amendment Implications on Remote Sensing in Criminal Law. Supplemental material for these, and all of the articles, are also available for download.
