The Americas Regional Round of the Price Media Law Moot Court Competition is an
international moot court program sponsored by the University of Oxford's
Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy, the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of
Law, and the Annenberg School of Communication. The competition provides a
regional forum for dialogue and debate on freedom of expression and media law
issues of global importance. This year's case focuses on privacy, surveillance, and data
security
, issues that are very much relevant to current events
as well as the future of international and national media law. Participants
will use international case law, including the rights enshrined in the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights and upheld by the Universal Court of
Human Rights. Participants will also be encouraged to draw on domestic law when
formulating their legal arguments.

 

Schools from Canada, the United States, Central America, South America, and the
Caribbean are invited to participate. The competition will be adjudicated by
judges and leading media law attorneys. Winning teams will qualify to
participate in the International Rounds held at Oxford University, UK.
