REMINDER: Oxford IP Moot Tryouts are Next Week!

We would like to remind you that tryouts for the Oxford International IP Law Moot team are next week! 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 the fact problem attached to this email. Each entrant must prepare skeleton arguments of no more than 3 double-spaced pages (excluding a table of authorities) addressing the copyright issue on behalf of the appellant in this fact problem. You will then be required to present a 10-minute oral argument, which will include responding to questions from the tryout judges.

Please contact Ashley Moniz ( by Monday to indicate your interest and availability via Zoom between 1pm and 5pm on October 5th and 7th. Following this, you will have until October 4th at 3pm to send us your skeleton arguments. Please include the following email subject heading in all communications: “Oxford Moot 2021/22 Tryouts – [FIRST & LAST NAME]”.

Following the tryouts, 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. For their participation, students receive 3 graded credits for preparing their written arguments and 2 credits for the oral rounds 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 Ashley directly at

Thank you for your interest, we look forward to another exciting year with the Oxford IP Moot!
