UCL’s Intellectual Property moot team success
28 March 2017
We are very pleased to announce that UCL’s Intellectual Property moot team (Irene Kuek, Pak Hei Li and Andrew Stahl) reached the semi-finals in the oral rounds of the Oxford International Intellectual Property Law Moot Competition, which took place at the University of Oxford between 16 to 18 March.
UCL was successful in the preliminary rounds which whittled down the original 24 teams to just eight, and beat off stiff competition from the Otago team to reach the final four, along with Oxford, Toronto and Bucerius. Congratulations, also, to Bucerius Law School, the ultimate winners.
The moot is one of the most prestigious intellectual property law mooting competitions attracting applications from teams from many distinguished law schools. This year 59 teams from around the world submitted written arguments this year. The team was coached by Professor Sir Robin Jacob, Sir Hugh Laddie Chair of Intellectual Property Law, Daniela Simone, Lecturer in Law at UCL Laws, and last year’s Semi-Finalists Jennifer Dixon and Kyra Nezami.
