Our program started with an opening statement about the Center by each of our three guests. As you will hear, John and Nick were students at the Center while Chuck has been a user of services provided by the Center as well as providing internship opportunities for the space law students. Each guest told just how important the Center was and still is to them and their work. Throughout our program, we talked about the Center Director, Joanne Irene Gabrynowicz who has been a guest on this program several times in the past. In our first segment, we talked about international space law, U.S. space law, and other space law schools, comparing their programs to those offered by the National Center. Specific issues such as remote sensing were highlighted as was commercial space, and telecommunications. Published by the National Center, the Journal of Space Law was discussed, including the archival base as well as new issue subscriptions. We talked about some of the articles published in it and the publication as an outstanding resource for space law and researchers in general. Also mentioned was the Res Communis blog which is a free subscription providing important and timely information about aviation and space law issues. Michael called in to talk about academics, treaty space law, international space law issues, and the contributions to the field from the Center. He mentioned the upcoming 7th Galloway Symposium on Critical Issues in Space Law in Washington, DC, an event sponsored by the Center. You can find out more about this event on the Center's website. In our short second segment, I asked about planetary protection and Article 9 of the OST based on our program earlier in the week with the director of NASA's Planetary Protection office. Our guests told us about their studies and work in this area and the relevance of this to the work of the Center. Listener Sagi called in to talk about the Center and how it has benefitted him in his law practice & more. I also thanked him for his part in helping me set up this program with our three guests. Other topics during this segment included commercial space, commercial space companies, other space law programs in the U.S. and around the world, plus the European Code of Conduct for Outer Space Development. Our three guests left us with meaningful closing comments which you definitely want to hear. Please post your comments/questions about this discussion on The Space Show blog.

He began his career with Lockheed Martin in Marietta, Georgia, as an attorney for Lockheed Martin’s Aeronautical Systems Company. His practice today focuses primarily on U. S. government contract law and space law. During his career he has advised clients on a wide range of legal topics, including international transactions, commercial contracts, litigation, environmental, employment and intellectual property law. Clients have consistently applauded his “preventative law” approach in helping them successfully achieve strategic objectives, resolve complex business issues, and avoid costly and unnecessary litigation. Chuck is also well recognized for the strong ethical foundation upon which his day-to-day practice is based. Chuck graduated from Emory University with a BA degree, and from Cumberland School of Law. Before joining Lockheed Martin, he was an attorney for the United States Army Missile Command in Huntsville, Alabama, specializing in contract litigation. Chuck is a member of the American Bar Association’s Section on Public Contract Law, and the Forum for Air and Space Law. He is a frequent speaker on various legal topics with the American Bar Association and other organizations involved in government contracting.

He continues to serve as a Captain in the Air National Guard. Mr. Welly is a graduate of Air University’s Aerospace Basic Course, where he was recognized as an exceptional performer, and Squadron Office School, where he earned Top 1/3 Graduate and Outstanding Contributor accolades.

Next year, Mr. Welly will complete a legal research project entitled Expanding the Use of U.S. Spy Satellites for Domestic Law Enforcement. Sponsored by the National Center for Remote Sensing, Air and Space Law (NCRSASL) at Ole Miss, the project will explore the legal and policy considerations surrounding the establishment of a National Applications Office within the Department of Homeland Security to facilitate access to national intelligence satellite surveillance data by U.S. law-enforcement officials.

John furthered his interest in the subject matter by participating in Center opportunities such as serving as a student editor for the Journal of Space Law and as a member of the 2010 Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition team.
