Price Media Law Moot Court
University of Oxford
24-27 March 2015

Last week I had the honour and pleasure to take part as a judge in the final oral rounds of the international Monroe E. Price Media Law Moot Court competition, which took place from 24 March until 27 March at Oxford’s Law Faculty.

This competition, founded in 2008 by the Program in Comparative Media Law and Policy at the University of Oxford, challenges students from all over the world to engage in comparative research of legal standards at the national and international levels, and to develop their arguments (written and oral) on frontier questions in media and ICT law.

Together with my colleague Lynn Pype from our office, our task was to judge the final moot court oral rounds in Oxford (including challenging the team’s legal arguments and expertise and providing over all feedback and assessment).  We were particularly impressed with the quality of the team’s arguments and of the high standard of competition amongst the teams.

The Price Media Law Moot Court Competition is more than a moot court. The Program is also an efficient tool for raising the profile of the media law and freedom of expression by encouraging informed and constructive discussion and debate on significant issues of information flows and technology around the world.
