Statement in relation to Covid-19
As a result of the rapid spread of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) globally and the risks associated with international travel at this time, the International Rounds of the Price Moot Court Competition 2020, due to take place at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights, Faculty of Law, University of Oxford, between the 30th March and 3rd April 2020 have unfortunately been cancelled. To provide qualifying teams with an alternative mooting experience, we have developed a plan to host a virtual moot over the same time period and we are looking forward to receiving teams’ entries soon.
The 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. 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 seven 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!
