Enter media law moot court competition at Oxford University

"Defending the media needs media defenders." That is the mantra of the Monroe E. Price International Media Law Moot Court Competition, which is open for registration to international applicants until 12 November 2010. This year's problem bridges issues of technology, content and regulation to expose students to cutting-edge areas of media law.

Teams will operate in a "Universal Freedom of Expression Court" to deal specifically with cases concerning free expression as set out in Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The oral rounds held at the University of Oxford from 30 March to 2 April 2011 offer participants an opportunity to argue a case before a bench of prestigious judges from different legal systems and backgrounds.

This moot court is organised by the Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, University of Oxford.

The overall losses are still shallow compared with the gains of the late 20th century, but the pattern is consistent and ominous. Democracy is in retreat.
