From Professor Louise Scott, The Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy, The Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, Oxford,
Registrations are now being invited for the 4th Monroe E. Price International Media Law Moot Court Competition. The moot court competition, organised by the Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy (PCMLP) at the University of Oxford, seeks to expand interest and expertise in media law and policy amongst students by giving them an opportunity to interact with leading academics, policy makers and industry players, both from the UK and abroad. This year’s problem bridges issues of technology, content and regulation to expose students to cutting-edge areas of media law. (See the case here: http://pricemootcourt.socleg.ox.ac.uk/sites/pricemootcourt.socleg.ox.ac.uk/files/Moot%20Problem%202011.pdf).
In previous competitions we have welcomed teams from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America and we expect that the 2011 competition will be even more international. The oral rounds are held at the University of Oxford and offer students an opportunity to argue a case before a bench of prestigious judges from different legal systems and backgrounds. The oral rounds will be held from 30 March – 2 April 2011.
The closing date for registrations is 12 November 2010. Further information can be found at: http://pricemootcourt.socleg.ox.ac.uk/.
