The Bonavero Institute of Human Rights at the University of Oxford is seeking to appoint an Assistant Moot Co-ordinator for the Monroe Price Moot Court Competition.  The Assistant Moot Co-ordinator will perform a range of tasks relating to the Moot, including assisting with the Moot Final round to be held in Oxford from 9 to 13 April 2018.

The post is available from immediately to the end of May 2018. The post holder must be based in Oxford and be available to work full time for the period between 6 and 20 April 2018.  The post will be based at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights.

The hours will vary but it is expected that the post holder will work up to 8 hours a week, save for the period between 6 and 20 April 2018 when it will be full-time.


The post will report to Professor Catherine O’Regan.


The successful applicant will work alongside the current Monroe Price Media Moot Co-ordinator to assist in co-ordinating the Price Media Law Moot Court competitions, including the international rounds in Oxford and regional competitions in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, the Americas and the Balkans.   She or he will also provide research and support to the projects that accompany the moot. The role will involve co-ordinating the development of the competition with our partners, working on the strategy for the future evolution of the competition and developing related research projects.

Applicants must possess a postgraduate degree in a relevant subject with evidence of engagement with, and an understanding of, issues related to governance, human rights and the rule of law. It is essential that they have experience of mooting – although this does not have to be in the area of Media Law.  They must also have a proven ability to undertake projects independently and oversee a network of collaborators, providing strategic direction where relevant and be willing to undertake some international travel. 


This post is open to current graduate research students in the Law Faculty and the hours are in line with the restrictions on working hours for students.

Rate of Pay

This will be paid at the standard research assistant rate of £14.80/hour plus holiday pay of £2.54 = total of £17.34/hour. 


This post is funded by the main Price Moot fund managed by the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights.
