Congratulations to the Osgoode JD team of (pictured from left) Timon Sisic (2L), Katya Bogdanova (2L), Noorain Shethwala (3L) and Mike Maodus (3L) who won two awards – Runner up Best Memorial (team) and Runner up Best Oralist (Noorain Shethwala) – in the Americas Rounds of the Price Media Law Moot Court Competition held recently at Cardozo Law School in New York City.
The team now advances to the 2016 International Rounds of the 9th annual Price Media Law Moot Court, which will take place in Oxford, England from March 30 until April 2, 2016.
Established by the Programme in Comparative Media Law & Policy at the University of Oxford in 2008, 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.
The annual Price Media Law 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 five Regional Rounds (South Asia, Asia-Pacific, South East Europe, Middle East and Americas) and the selective International Rounds held in Oxford.
