The Price Media Law Moot Court Competition

Americas
Regional Round in New York City

January 22 – 26, 2014

 

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 relevant international
case law, including those based on 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.

 

The moot is seeking both teams and judges. 

 

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

 

Travel
grants between $1,000- 5,000 USD are available to teams from Latin America
