Giles Rich I.P. Moot Court Competition
The annual Giles Sutherland Rich Memorial Moot Court Competition is named for a member of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, who is the most distinguished jurist in the field of patent law in the world. Each year, the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) sponsors the competition and publishes a moot court problem in the field of intellectual property (Patents, Trademarks, and Copyrights).
The Giles S. Rich Moot Court Competition is first held at an intra-school level and then is divided into four regional competitions followed by a national competition among the top two teams from each region. The George Washington University Law School will send the top placing team at the intra-school competition to the northeast regional competition in the spring.
The competition is open to upper-level students, who will receive one elective credit for their participation.
