As the 2021 Americas Regional Champions and the internationally-ranked fifth place team, the Monroe E. Price Media Law Moot Court Competition is excited to enter its third year. Established by the Programme in Comparative Media Law & Policy at the University of Oxford in 2008, and named after the University of Pennsylvania’s own Professor Monroe Price of the Annenberg School for Communication, the Price Moot Court Competition engages law students from around the world and creates an environment to critically examine media, technology, and international human rights law.
Four oralists and two expert Of-Counsel work together through the fall and spring semesters to prepare written briefs and develop oral arguments used in the regional and international competition. Selected through a try-out process conducted each fall, the team consists of 1Ls, 2Ls, 3Ls, and LLM students; students from each class are eligible to try-out.
Participation on the team comes with a number of great opportunities. Team membership offers an early opportunity to engage with and learn about appellate oral advocacy and develop moot court skills. Additionally, it brings the chance for students to travel (potentially internationally) to meet students and practitioners from around the world who hold similar interests, exercise skills in comparative legal research and writing, and develop legal expertise in human rights as applied to media and technology.
