Bas Jacobs joins the ECAC Secretariat as a trainee from the Netherlands to support the activities of the group on the legal status of ECAC (LEGS). Bas is the Secretariat’s first trainee and will work directly with the Executive Secretary Patricia Reverdy as his mentor. Currently, he is pursuing an advanced LL.

He has also worked at the Kalshoven-Gieskes Forum on International Humanitarian Law on the use of satellite information for documenting evidence of human rights violations and researched European and Dutch rules around suborbital flights as a legal clerk at the Space Court Foundation. Bas is excited to explore all the institutional law dimensions around the drafting of a new convention and looks forward to gaining a deeper understanding of ECAC and its activities in aviation sustainability and security over the next six months.
