Price Media Law Moot Court Competition is being hosted Bonavero Institute of Human Rights in the Faculty of Law at the University of Oxford, from 1 August 2017. With the Faculty and College working in partnership, this dynamic global research institute will bring together world-class scholars and practitioners with an active interest in bridging the divide between theory and practice in human rights.
Price Media Law Moot Court Programme aims to foster and cultivate interest in freedom of expression issues and the role of the media and information technologies in societies around the world and it was established by the Programme in Comparative Media Law & Policy at the University of Oxford in 2008.
The annual Price Moot Court Competition challenges students to engage in comparative research of legal standards at the national, regional and international levels, and to develop their arguments (in written and oral forms) on cutting-edge questions in media and ICT law. The Competition is currently comprised of six Regional Rounds (South Asia, Asia-Pacific, South East Europe, North East Europe, Middle East, Africa and Americas) and the selective International Rounds held in Oxford, gathering participants from countries as diverse as Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, Greece, India, Lebanon, the Philippines, Serbia, Trinidad and Tobago, Ukraine, the UK and the USA.
The Price Media Law Moot Court Programme is more than a moot court!
