At the Duke Moot Court Competition each pair of students will give an oral appellate argument in three preliminary matches before moving on to elimination! One student from each pair will argue about whether the use of a device called the Skyhawk 9000 in the airspace above a glacier violates a territorial sovereignty clause in the United Nations Charter. The second member of the pair will argue about whether the replication of the Stryker X50 cloaking device developed by Peterson and Ramkumar Inc. violates trade secrets protections under Article 39 of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights.

Check the “Updates” page in March for updates as to how our competition goes!
