Price Media Law Moot Court Competition

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 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.  Please click here for more information.
