Osgoode JD students Alana Robert and James Shields were superb in their semifinal round against Kyiv Mohyla Academy at the Price Media Law Moot Court Competition. In a split 2-1 ruling, Kyiv Mohyla Academy advanced.
The Price Media Law Moot Court Program, established in 2008, 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.” It was established by the University of Oxford’s Program in Comparative Media Law & Policy.
The competition is designed to challenge law students to participate in comparative research that meets legal standards at all levels (regional, national and international). Students learn to develop their arguments, both written and oral, on issues in media and information and communications technology law.
