Osgoode performs admirably at Oxford’s Price Moot Court Competition

Oxford Price Media Law Moot 2017

Osgoode performed admirably at the Price Moot Court Competition at the University of Oxford April 3 to 7, but unfortunately did not make it out of the preliminary stage of the competition.  The team decisively won two preliminary rounds and narrowly lost a third (winning the oral but losing on the memorial to a team that was later recognized for best overall memorial).

“Despite the disappointment, the team were fantastic ambassadors for Osgoode,” said Professor Faisal Bhabha who, together with Iris Fischer of Blakes, co-coached the team.  “They befriended many of the teams, showed grace and openness, left a very positive impression on judges, mooters and organizers alike, and I am confident have grown Osgoode’s international reputation.”

The annual Price 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.
