NKUA: International distinction for the School of Law – Qualification for the International Rounds of Price Media Law Moot Court Competition

Through the Regional Rounds, the NKUA School of Law team qualified for the International Rounds, which will be held in Oxford, UK, from April 15–19, 2024. The team represented Greece in the 2023 European Rounds of the International Moot Court Competition in Media and Information Law, “Price Media Law Moot Court Competition,” held in Paris, France, from January 31–February 2, 2024.

The Price Media Law Moot Court Competition is organized annually by the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights at the University of Oxford’s Faculty of Law. This year’s case approaches extremely interesting and topical legal issues related to Artificial Intelligence and its relationship with the fundamental right to freedom of expression. The case is available at https://www.law.ox.ac.uk/content/cases-and-rules.

The NKUA’s School of Law has been participating in the Competition since 2020, with excellent results thanks to its consistent performance at the memorials and the oral pleadings before the Judges.

The members of this year’s team were Athanasia Pateli, Argyro-Demetra Papavassiliou, Ioanna Lymioti, and Ioanna-Rafailia Malandraki, all undergraduate students at NKUA. They were supervised and guided by Dr. Rebecca-Emmanouela Papadopoulou, an associate professor of European law at NKUA, and Dr. Georgios Kyriakopoulos, an associate professor of public international law at NKUA. Eleni Radovits, an NKUA undergraduate student and a previous competitor in the Competition (2022 Competition Year), served as the team’s coach.

The Memorial Judges and the Oral Rounds Judges gave the team outstanding feedback about their performance (‘Admirable legal reasoning and structure’, ‘Excellent understanding of Public International Law and profound understanding of the ambiguous legal realms of artificial intelligence’). The Judges were particularly impressed by the team’s broad and robust legal reasoning and profound understanding of Public International Law and Media and Information Law.

The participation and achievements of this year’s team were also made possible through the support of our sponsors, namely the Marangopoulos Foundation for Human Rights (MFHR) and the Law Firms ‘Drakopoulos’, ‘Bahas, Gramatidis & Partners’, ‘Bernitsas’, ‘PotamitisVekris’, and ‘Troulis & Partners’.
