AUA Students Hone Litigation Skills in Fourth Annual IP Moot Court Competition
YEREVAN, Armenia – On February 8-9, 2014, students from the American University of Armenia (AUA) attended the Intellectual Property Rights Center (IPRC)’s Fourth Annual Intellectual Property (IP) Moot Court Competition at AUA. Teams from five different law schools took part in the two-day event and once again impressed the judges with their skills and knowledge in the field of intellectual property rights.
Over the past four years, the IP Moot Court has become one of the biggest and most popular IP events in Armenia. Once a year it draws together a wide range of people in this field from both the private and public sectors. Students from private and public law schools attend to compete with each other and to show their skills and knowledge. IP lawyers from private law firms, representatives from state authorities, and authors’ rights societies attend to serve as judges for the IP Moot Court.
The organizer of the IP Moot Court ensures that the competition is an educational experience and that it raises public awareness in intellectual property rights and issues. The IP Moot Court also gives law students the opportunity to enhance their writing and oral argumentation skills in the field of Intellectual Property rights, while wrestling with cutting-edge issues in IP law.
