The Intellectual Property Moot is held annually in Oxford over a weekend in March. It is hosted by the Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre and organised by a committee of DPhil and FHS students with an interest in intellectual property.

The Competition invites teams from universities around the world to prepare written submissions and present oral argument on each side of a hypothetical intellectual property law problem set by experts in the field.

As has been the case in previous years, participation in the oral rounds was by invitation on the basis of two written submissions prepared by teams wishing to compete.

Following short-listing, 24 teams from Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Singapore, the United States and the United Kingdom competed at the oral rounds. Participants were also invited to a variety of related events including the IP Conversazione and Grand Final Dinner both held at Pembroke College.
