Osgoode JD students Alana Robert (back row, fourth from the right ) and James Shields (back row, fifth from the right) were superb in their semi-final round against Kyiv Mohyla Academy at the Price Media Law Moot Court Competition. In a split 2-1 ruling, Kyiv Mohyla Academy advanced. Congratulations to the Osgoode team on an impressive run in NYC and Oxford!
The Price Media Law Moot Court Programme, established in 2008, 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.” It was established by the University of Oxford’s Programme in Comparative Media Law & Policy.
The competition is designed to challenge law students to participate in comparative research that meets legal standards at all levels (regional, national and international). Students learn to develop their arguments, both written and oral, on issues in media and information and communications technology law.
