Oxford IP Moot Tryouts EXTENDED

Oxford IP Moot Tryouts EXTENDED

We are still looking for one more student to join our Oxford IP Moot team! If you are interested, please review the information and link to the tryout problem below and contact Ashley as soon as possible. Applicants will be considered on a rolling basis until we recruit a suitable candidate.

Students enrolled in the moot have the distinct opportunity to be coached by lawyers at Cassels, Brock & Blackwell LLP and former Osgoode team members, receive guidance from faculty advisors who founded the moot, and, if selected for the oral rounds, practice in front of judges on IP Osgoode's Advisory Board. 

We thank all interested applicants and continue to look forward to another great year in the Oxford Moot.


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 (amoniz@osgoode.yorku.caas soon as possible to indicate your interest and receive further instructions. 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 amoniz@osgoode.yorku.ca.

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