The question for the 2019 Oxford IP Moot focuses on trade mark law, and introduces a new fictitious country: Shangri-La. The hypothetical revolves around the registration, in Erewhon, of a mark that contains Shangri-Lese characters alongside an English word. There is an allegation of trade mark infringement in relation to that mark.
Participation in the oral rounds is by invitation only, on the basis of two written submissions prepared by teams wishing to compete.
The oral proceedings will comprise at least four preliminary rounds, Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and a Grand Final. Teams may comprise two or three students, with any two team members speaking in any given moot. The Grand Final is always held before senior members of the judiciary; in 2019 the bench will include Lord Kitchin, Lord Justice Floyd and Mr Justice Carr.
