  • Your Memorial must adhere to the formatting rules specified in the Price Moot rules 5.5.3 and 5.5.12.

  • Your Memorial must include your name and email address.

Each entrant must submit their own, unique Memorial for consideration. Four entrants will be selected to represent City University as a team in the Price Media Moot. Selection will be based on the criteria for judging Memorials specified in the Price Moot competition rules.
