Greg Monforton & Partners was proud to sponsor a team of three Windsor Law students in their journey to Oxford, England to participate in the 2015 Oxford International Intellectual Property Moot.
With a record number of entries, the team made the short list into the invitation-only portion of the competition held in March.
The moot court competition, which is open to all registered law students around the world, begins with a hypothetical problem that was posted in September. This years question focused on breach of confidence and patent infringement in the agricultural biotechnology sector.
Based on a blind review of two written submissions, the Windsor team was selected to proceed to the oral arguments round in England.
By investing in the education of these students, we are helping create a solid foundation for the betterment of the legal profession and ensuring that we are able to maximize results for all clients.
In recent years, 25-30 teams have been invited to compete, including teams from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China, Japan, Australia, India and Singapore.
The Windsor Law team included Victoria Asikis (Law III), Hakim Kassam (Law III) and Stephanie Pietrangelo (Dual JD Law III).
The team had more than 20 oral practice sessions with faculty, students, alumni and legal experts in the Windsor and Toronto areas.
The Windsor personal injury lawyers and support staff at Greg Monforton & Partners would like to say congratulations to the team on their success in this prestigious moot.
