The Price Media Law Moot Court Competition is organised by the Programme in Comparative Media Law & Policy at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies within the Faculty of Law.

The Competition, which gathers students from across the globe, focuses on media law and policy, and in particular, freedom of expression as set out in Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The competition is set before a fictitious body, the 'Universal Freedom of Expression Court'. Each year, the Price Moot Court case raises cutting-edge questions about the role of new information technologies and media regulation in societies around the world.


The case for the Price Moot Court Competition is released in September; teams must register by November; written memorial are due in January; and the oral rounds take place in Oxford in March.
