INTA’s Asia-Pacific Moot Court Competition 2018-19
The Asia-Pacific Moot Court Competition will be open to law students from law schools that are located in the Asia-Pacific region and globally. This competition will feature a fact pattern consisting of important issues related to trademark and unfair competition law and practice. The law students who participate in the Asia-Pacific Moot Court Competition will have the opportunity to develop their brief-writing skills and mastery of oral advocacy in a mock courtroom experience. Additionally, law students will receive practical feedback, after each set of arguments, from the panel of judges. The judges will be INTA member volunteers, all of who are accomplished trademark practitioners and professionals from the region.
Now entering its 28th year, the Lefkowitz Competition is an annual event bringing together hundreds of law students in the United States. Building on the success of the Lefkowitz Competition, INTA hopes to develop regional moot court competitions around the globe in years to come.
The winning law school will receive a donation from INTA of 1000 USD. The winning team members will each receive a monetary prize as well as complimentary INTA student memberships, giving them access to all of INTA’s online resources (at no cost) and all of INTA’s conferences, meetings, webcasts, and more (at highly subsidized pricing). INTA student membership also gives your law students access to INTA’s international community of trademark professionals, the world’s premier professional network of intellectual property attorneys.
