The first Manfred Lachs Moot Court Competition was held in 1992. Participation in the Competition has steadily increased over the years, and now sees a large number of teams from leading law schools in each of the regions. Currently, around 60 teams register each year to participate in the Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition and numbers continue to grow. The winners of each region gather for the world finals in September or October, held in conjunction with the International Astronautical Congress and the IISL Colloquium on the Law of Outer Space. The winner of the World Final is presented with the Manfred Lachs Trophy. In addition to the Trophy, awards are also given at the world finals for the best memorials and the best oralist.
