Oxford International Intellectual Property Law Moot (“Oxford IP Moot”)

The Intellectual Property Moot is held annually in Oxford. The competition is hosted by the Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre and organized by the Moot committee.  The Competition invites teams from universities around the world to prepare written submissions. From the written submissions, teams are chosen to be invited to the oral rounds. During the oral competition students will be judged by leading counsel in IP law from around the world. The final round of the oral competition will be judged by three UK judges. For this reason, the competition is a great way to network, and to learn from experienced counsel.  For more information, please refer to this website.
