CALL FOR TRYOUTS - 2021/22 Oxford International IP Law Moot Team

IP Osgoode invites 2L and 3L Osgoode students to try out for this year’s Oxford International IP Law Moot team! We have high expectations following our team’s second place finish last year and are looking for top notch talent to continue this legacy.

To try out, please refer to this fact problem. Each entrant must prepare skeleton arguments of no more than 3 double-spaced pages (excluding a table of authorities) addressing the copyright issue. You will then be required to present a 10-minute oral argument, which will include responding to questions from the tryout judges.

Update 22 September 2021: For the tryout, prepare your skeleton arguments and oral submissions as if you are representing the appellant.

Please contact Ashley Moniz ( as soon as possible to indicate your interest and availability via Zoom between 1pm and 5pm on October 5th and 7th. Following this, you will have until October 4 at 3pm to send us your skeleton arguments. Please include the following email subject heading in all communications: “Oxford Moot 2021 Tryouts – [FIRST & LAST NAME]”.

The Moots & Skills Program Director will contact successful applicants directly.

Please note that Rule 5.1(e) of the Academic Rules prohibits enrollment in more than one competitive lawyering simulation competition in any single academic year.

The team will be mentored by Prof. David Vaver and Prof. Pina D’Agostino and coached by a select team of IP practitioners on appellate advocacy. Students will receive 3 graded credits for their written arguments and 2 credits for their oral arguments if they advance. All credits are allocated to the Winter Term.

If you have any further questions, require special accommodations, or need more information, please email me directly at

We look forward to another exciting year with the Oxford Moot!
