Abstract

A space law workshop organized by North South Star Research Consultancy and titled "Africa and Space: Forging a way for Nigerian leadership through space law" was held in Lagos on the 20 th September 2011. The workshop had 2 main objectives: firstly, to introduce space law to Nigerian lawyers through a lecture and open round table discussion, and secondly to prepare the Nigerian team competing in the African Introductory Round of the Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition. A questionnaire was developed to form the basis of the open round table discussion. The purpose of the questionnaire, the lecture and the open discussion with Nigerian lawyers was to seek a common Nigerian legal view on some issues relevant to space activities in Africa. This paper summarizes the discussions.
