'I wanted to let you know that our QU College of Law team has advanced to the final round of the Oxford University Monroe E. Price International Media Law Moot Court Competition – Middle Eastern Round.

Our team performed exceptionally well in the two days of preliminary rounds, defeating three out of the four opponents we faced.  We defeated the teams from UAE University, Jordan University, and Yarmouk University.  (And not only did we defeat them – in each of those three rounds the panel of three judges unanimously agreed that QU was the victor!)

In tomorrow’s final round, we will again face the team from the University of Sharjah, to whom we suffered our only loss of the competition.  I believe it will be a very hard-fought and impressive final round, and I encourage you all to attend if possible.' Dr. Henry Webb, coach.
